A hot-looking woman from California, stole a taxi cab and took it for a joyride while visiting New York.
Now, the woman will have to extend her stay in New York, as she faces a charge of grand larceny.
27-year-old Kinga Tabares, who works as a real estate broker, was visiting from Los Angeles. She was arrested in Chelsea, for stealing the taxi while she was drunk. She had been out on a wild night of drinking with friends.
Tabares was pulled over by police while driving the yellow Toyota on 26 Street and Third Avenue about 12:30 a.m. on Friday.
The driver told police that Tabares was a passenger in his taxi when she got out of the car and into the driver’s seat.
Police found that she reeked of alcohol, had slurred speech and had vomited, prosecutors said.
Tabares was charged with grand larceny, unauthorized use of a vehicle, DWI and refusal to take a test for blood alcohol.
