Dr. MIke’s $320,000 Lamborghini was taken for a joy ride across NYC by a parking attendant at his building
A New York City parking garage attendant took a five-hour joy ride in a $320,000 Lamborghini Urus owned by a physician who was once named the ‘sexiest doctor alive.’
Dr. Mike, whose real name is Mikhail Varshavski, purchased the Lambo last September and was apparently keeping it in a monitored garage at his apartment building in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards neighborhood.
The attendant stole Varshavski’s car from the garage earlier this month, in the wee hours of the morning, and drove it ‘all over New York City,’ a source told The New York Post.
A NYPD license plate check discovered the driver rode through Staten Island and on the Verrazzo-Narrows Bridge and the Williamsburg Bridge.
Officials only learned about the thief’s spin around the city after residents tried to access their vehicles and the attendant was nowhere to be found.
‘The reason that they caught him was because other people came to get their cars and there was no one there,’ the source said. ‘So security had to go through the footage to find out where he went, and then they waited for him to return a few hours later.’
