SoCal Dude Arrested for Stealing Same Ferrari Twice

[media-credit name=”Fontana Police Department via Press Enterprise” align=”aligncenter” width=”300″]earnie steven hooks[/media-credit]Earnie Steven Hooks really likes himself one particular black 2014 Ferrari 458 Spider. And why would he not? It is nice looking, has a 570-horsepower V-8 engine, and the ladies are sure to love it. Only thing, it starts at a whopping $257,412.

But that price did not stop Steven from taking a ride in his dream-mobile late last month. He allegedly stole one, then had to elude Fontana police after speeding away from a DUI checkpoint (yes, a Ferrari will stand out a bit in Fontucky).

But dammit, Earnie loved that car! He wanted that car!! He needed that car!!! So, only a day after the incident, he allegedly broke into the impound facility and stole his precious Ferrari for a second time.

Detectives found him Thursday allegedly driving the stolen vehicle in Studio City.

Hooks was arrested and now faces a number of charges, including theft and unlawful taking or driving of a vehicle.
