Meet The Dumbest Limo Client Ever

Posted on August 23, 2011

LINCOLN, Neb.— Authorities say a Nebraska party goer who passed out in a limousine bus bathroom later drove the 40-foot-long vehicle home, but left his wallet behind — in a pair of jeans.

Lincoln police say the $80,000 bus was found a few blocks from Steven Hunter's home Saturday afternoon. Capt. David Biggs says the 30-year-old doesn't remember driving the bus. He's charged with criminal mischief and unauthorized vehicle use.

Police say Hunter was likely asleep when the bus was taken back to Leisure Limousine Service around 3:30 a.m. Investigators believe that when he woke up, he realized the doors were locked, saw the keys and drove home. The jeans were found in the bathroom.

A phone number for Hunter's address couldn't be found Monday. Online court records didn't list an attorney.

MORALS OF THE STORY:

  • Always check the bus bathroom before leaving the vehicle.
  • Never leave the keys in the vehicle.
  • Don't forget your pants -- anywhere.
  • If you steal a vehicle, make sure it will blend with traffic.
