It's an unfortunate reality, but a reality nonetheless. It's just unusual when the same guy steals the same car twice, but that's what apparently occurred recently in Fontana, CA.<br /><br />That's where one Earnie Hooks was arrested late last month driving a black <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/458+spider/">Ferrari 458 Spider</a>. According to police, Hooks was intoxicated when he arrived at a roadside checkpoint, and when they ran the plates, they found the car was reported as stolen.<br /><br />Hooks managed to evade police (not too hard to imagine given the car he was driving) and later abandoned the car, which was taken to the impound. Around 3 am the next morning, though, <em>someone</em> broke into the impound and stole the car... again. Hooks was found five days later in Studio City, still driving the stolen <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/">Ferrari</a>. He was arrested and somehow still had the gall to plead not guilty to the charges of car theft and resisting arrest.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/11/california-man-steals-same-ferrari-twice-report/">CA man accused of stealing same Ferrari twice</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 11 Sep 2014 17:46:00 EST.
