    Former UConn standout Jeff Adrien is alleged to have coaxed a new Mercedes-Benz away from a parking valet before subsequently going on a six-hour joy ride, according to TMZ.

    After returning the vehicle, Adrien was reportedly arrested for grand theft auto and later released on $25,000 bail.

    To make matters worse, the owner of the car alleges that it smelled like marijuana after the six-hour ordeal, per TMZ.

    If he really was using Marijuana, it may have negated the intent unless he was smoking afterwards...

    Yes, you did. You said 'What the f***'.

    I just told you it's a cultural thing (probably). Those people, you could call them thrill-seekers. They enjoy the thrill of stealing stuff.

    Oh, your talking about the culture of thrill seekers. It thought you where talking about black people for a second. My bad, nevermind.

    And Wtf isnt a question, it may have the word what in it, buts its a statement. There's a period behind it, not a question mark.

    You don't have to be black to be a thrill-seeker.

    Thanks for clarifying about the Wtf.

    I know he retained the car for six hours, but if Adrien never had the intent to steal, how can this be grand theft auto?

    Did he take the car? (Yes)
    Did he have permission from the owner to take the car? (No)

    I would say based on the answer to the above 2 questions that Grand Theft Auto can be proven. The amount of time he had the car isn't irrelevant (and is a mitigating factor). But for the actual charge it essentially is.

    He returned the car smelling better than before. What's the problem again?
