Remember the dipshit who drove the Bugatti into a Texas lagoon to "avoid hitting a pelican" except we all know there wasn't one because brobro never would've guessed in a million years some other idiot that thought he was driving a Lamborghini was filming the whole scene? Well now he's going to trail for insurance fraud. I thought it was supposed to turn into a submarine, I swear!
The insurance company claims [auto deal Andy] House borrowed $1 million from a friend to buy the car and then bought insurance on it as a collector's vehicle, valuing it at more than $2 million. It says he drove it into the swamp to collect the insurance, which was supposed to go to the friend who lent him the purchase money.
House says he swerved off the road to avoid hitting a pelican, but the insurance company says there's no pelican in the video. Plus, it says it went to the scene and found no skid marks, and it further alleges that House "left the vehicle running for over fifteen minutes while it was submerged until it died on its own causing unnecessary damage to the vehicle's engine."
Not gonna lie, that does smell a little fishy. Get it? The car -- it was in a lagoon! That smell's never gonna come out. But seriously, dude better be praying he doesn't wind up in jail with any auto enthusiasts. Know what I'm saying? I'm saying he's gonna get rear-ended. "And void his warranty?!" ZERO PROTECTION PLAN.
Hit the jump for the video of the crash (note: salty language) if you didn't catch it the first time.
Thanks to Scissorcake, who sounds pretty f***ing dangerous to eat.
