Fiat heir arrested in US for faking own kidnapping
Yahoo News - 3 months
One of the heirs to the Fiat automobile fortune, Lapo Elkann, has been arrested in New York for allegedly faking his own kidnapping, police said Tuesday, amid reports that he was trying to pay for a weekend of debauchery. According to several US media outlets, Elkann, the grandson of legendary Fiat founder Gianni Agnelli, tried to make his family believe he had been kidnapped when he ran out of money during a two-day bender of sex and drugs. Elkann was ordered to appear in a New York court in January for falsely reporting an incident before being released, police said, without confirming whether Elkann was found with a prostitute or whether drugs were involved.

The Huffington Post - over 3 years
