Literally could not make this up:

A hotel valet employee was arrested after, police said, he took a car owned by Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne and drove it while he was drunk.

Wayne, 34, told police he left his 2007 Bentley around 6:30 p.m. Saturday with a valet employee at The Westin Hotel on South Capitol Avenue in Downtown Indianapolis. Wayne's keys and his car were missing the next morning, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.

Police later identified the employee who took Wayne's car as Gunner Belcher, 21, Indianapolis. A supervisor told police Belcher left work around 9 p.m. Saturday but did not clock out, the report said.

He was arrested around 2 a.m. Sunday in the 300 block of South Meridian Street for driving while intoxicated, the report said.
