Reggie Wayne went to sleep on Saturday night while a hotel valet got drunk and drove around in his expensive Bentley.
CBS Sports hand-delivers one of the best stories involving a valet this side of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
It seems Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne was far too trusting when handing over his keys to a valet he wholly believed would park his Bentley. Instead, the individual took it for a joy ride and eventually get popped for intoxication.
The report states Wayne was staying at the Westin in downtown Indianapolis and pulled in with his 2007 Bentley.
The rest is joyride history.
Gunner Belcher, a 21-year-old valet at The Westin in Indy, decided to take Wayne's car for a joyride in downtown Indy when he clocked out of work at 9 p.m. Saturday.
The Indy Star reports that same valet was later arrested at about 2 a.m. Sunday morning for driving while intoxicated.
It seems Wayne handed over the keys at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening, and Belcher clocked out around 9 p.m.
We can only imagine the giddiness Belcher suffered those few hours as he planned to ride off in Wayne's Bentley for the night.
The car was eventually towed after the arrest and returned back to a trusting Wayne who—and this is the best part—went out and dominated for the Colts.
Colts punter Pat McAfee says it best on Twitter.
Reggie Wayne balled out a couple hours after finding out his Bentley was stolen..Dude's ridiculous..6 figure car missing..Can't shake him— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) December 10, 2012
He caught 6 passes for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Colts win over the Tennessee Titans.
I have never enjoyed handing over the keys to a valet, letting some random dude take possession of one of my most valuable items while I walk away...and my ride is a hoop-dee.
If you happen to see a twinkle in that valet's eyes, park the car yourself.
