He couldn’t have done it, he’s too pretty!
But not so, Ian Rutledge is a shady mo-fo, and is a cross-dressing car thief in this rather strange story.
Ciardo first met Rutledge in April, when Ciardo put his car up for sale on Craigslist. Ciardo said Rutledge agreed to buy the car. They agreed to meet in the Brookfield Square parking lot so Rutledge could buy the car.
“All the times we’ve talked over the phone, and on Craigslist, I always thought it was a woman, from the voice,” Ciardo said.
So he was shocked to learn Rutledge was a man. But even more shocked when he says Rutledge drove off in his car. Police said Rutledge then led Wauwatosa Police on a 100 mile per hour chase through residential neighborhoods, in Ciardo’s car.
100 mph chase through residential neighborhoods? That’s one fast chick! But really, the best part of all this is that mugshot. I just wish we could have seen him in the full get-up before he went to jail.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
