who is this guy?

http://www.dailybreeze.com/news/regs...s/6182411.html

A Lamborghini sports car worth more than $275,000 crashed into five parked cars in Santa Monica today, and the driver was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said.

The accident at Ocean Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard occurred about 2:30 a.m., Santa Monica police Sgt. Shane Talbot said.

David August Johnson, 26 or 27, and a male passenger in the Italian sports car were taken to a hospital to be checked out, but neither appeared seriously injured, Talbot said.

A woman who lives near the intersection told a camera crew at the scene that she heard a high-powered car going up and down the street shortly before the wreck.

The silver-colored Lamborghini appeared to be totaled, and at least two of the parked cars were heavily damaged, according to a freelance video crew.

Lamborghinis, most of which are powered by a V-12 engine, are among the most powerful and expensive street-legal vehicles made.

Did you notice what kind of car is on the bottom here? A Ferrari! Bad week for the owners of Italian sports cars!

The back of the car definitely has a Ferrari logo... and if you zoom in enough, you can see the license plate!

Re: who is this guy?

So I'm guessing that this David August Johnson must be a real LBYM'er to be able to afford a Lambo at the tender young age of 26! :

When I was 26, I was driving a 1968 Dodge Dart with 300K+ miles on it. My family got on me to get a newer car, so I found this real nice 1979 Newport in the junkyard for $250. Only had 230K on it.

There can't be very many Lamborghini owners in the US (or world).

There's only a few ways a 26-year-old could afford one.

Has anyone heard of this guy?

Is he a wealthy heir?

Sports guy?

Someone in entertainment?

Drug dealer?

As far as the original post...

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I got the photo from that thead. In fact, that thread is what I was referring to when I rhetorically asked if people had noticed what kind of car was on the bottom.

Ding! Ding! Ding!!! (as CFB would say) We have a winner! A 26 year old Lamborghini owner in Los Angeles that nobody's ever heard of could very well be a high level drug dealer, in my opinion.
