News now comes that the Los Angeles Country district attorney’s office has filed misdemeanor charges against the two former Pacific BMW employees for their actions. This stems from a joyride that the two men took in the not-yet-delivered BMW 1 Series M coupe down the residential streets of Glendale, CA.
A video of the ride (some of which can be seen below) was then posted by the men on YouTube.
According to the district attorney’s complaint filed against the two men – Vacheh Margoussian (21) and Artin Yazidjian (22), each faces misdeameanor charges for taking the 1M from the dealership. In addition, Margoussian was also charged with a misdemeanor reckless driving charge. As a passenger, Yazidjian videotaped Margoussian driving at a high rate of speed down East Windsor Road, according to the complaint.
The men are scheduled to be arraigned on December 12th in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Glendale.
