20-Year-Old Posts Video Of Him Drinking And Driving Ferrari That Crashed

The driver of the Ferrari has been accused of receiving special treatment from police in Morocco


Rabat:  A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to two years in jail in Morocco after he triggered a scandal by posting videos of himself apparently drinking while driving a Ferrari, crashing his car, disrespecting police officers at the crash site and even smoking a cigarette while seated in an ambulance. The footage of him appearing to be heavily intoxicated in the capital Rabat went viral on social media, causing quite a scandal in the North African country. 

In a series of videos, that appear to be filmed on a mobile phone, the man is first seen driving a Ferrari and drinking from what seems to be a bottle of champagne.
