Swede Who Crashed $1 Million Ferrari Trial Begins

 

Bo Stefan Eriksson, who was the executive of a now bankrupt videogame company, Gizmondo Europe, is currently in a Los Angeles court on charges of theft and embezzlement.

His downfall started when he destroyed a rare $1 million Enzo Ferrari in Malibu, which was reportedly stolen, after speeding over 160 mph. The crash led to his exposure of million-dollar homes, fast cars and burned out businesses.

Eriksson, who declared bankruptcy after being over $200 million in debt, also has previous convictions in Sweden, including assault, forgery and fraud.

  Hmmmm  
 
wasn't this the same person who try to claim a german person was driving his car and ran into the woods or something like that?

I think this was reported in SN as well

Yeah, it's the same fool. He claimed someone else was behind the wheel and they were racing a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (a half-million dollar ride) when the crash occured.

Some people just don't appreciate how good they have it.
Supposing you had the $1mil to buy an Enzo, it would still be hard to get your hands on one. Not only are they limited in production, but Ferrari hand-picks who will own them. It's almost like going through an adoption process to buy one of these things.

A true moron, indeed.

  Where's Kaleid!?  
 
Wish he was here to comment. (he's Swedish)

Swedish prisons are a joke... but, with the recent swing to the right in Swedish politics, I expect things will be less pleasant for prisoners. This guy will have a tough time in an American (Californian, even!) prison system. He's going to be very popular.

Life is too easy for many in Scandinavian countries and it makes them go nuts. Their middle-class makes other countries upper-class look poor!

(I am half-Swedish, by the way...)

  Hah hah..  
 
I'm right here...although I haven't followed this story at all.
Prisons should punishment but there has to be some focus on rehabilitation unless we want to create greater monsters than we put it. Of course some are such monsters that they are better left there in the jailcells..

As for cars...I find them rather boring and yes I'm straight :P

As for nuts...we'll I think we get more of those stories from America even if you'd count percentage wise since poverty more than anything makes people do desperate things :P
And then there are the superwealthy who get away with almost everything..
