Reggie Wayne's Car Stolen By A Hotel Valet, Who Took It For A Joyride, Police Say

Posted: Updated:

Reggie Wayne's Night Off didn't quite go as planned on Saturday, when a hotel valet allegedly stole his Bentley and took it on a drunken joyride before getting picked up by police early Sunday morning.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Wayne left his 2007 Bentley with a valet at The Westin Hotel at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday. He woke up the next morning to find his keys and the car missing.

A supervisor noted that a valet, identified as Gunner Belcher, left the hotel at 9 p.m. Saturday but failed to clock out. A garage security officer told authorities he had seen a man matching Belcher's description take the Bentley from the lot late that night, WISH-TV reports.

Belcher, 21, was arrested at about 2 a.m. Sunday for driving while intoxicated. WISH-TV notes the valet failed several sobriety tests and claimed he was Wayne's "cousin by marriage." Police confirmed the car was in fact the missing Bentley, which has since been returned to the Colts star.

Many Internet users have noted the similarity between Belcher's blunder and the iconic scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, in which the group leaves a Ferrari in a garage only to have the valets take it out on a joyride around Chicago. The scene was one of many from the film recreated for a recent Honda commercial starring Matthew Broderick that aired during Super Bowl XLVI.

As Colts punter Pat McAfee pointed out, the entire incident is all the more impressive given Wayne's stellar performance on the field just a few hours later. The Indianapolis wide receiver hauled in six passes for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 27-23 win over the Titans:
