    Guy Fieri talks about his recovered stolen Lamborghini (Published Tuesday, May 1, 2012)

    A North Bay teenager is being charged as an adult in connection with stealing Food Network chef Guy Fieri's Lamborghini.

    The Marin IJ reported 17-year-old Max Michael Wade not only faces a car theft charge, but also faces two counts of attempted murder.

    The murder charges stem from an unrelated shooting on April 13 where a person on a motorcycle fired into a truck occupied by two teenagers.

    Police said they discovered Fieri's car this weekend in Point Richmond while investigating the shooting at a storage unit connected to the teen, the newspaper reported.

    The storage unit also contained an AK-47 assault rifle, a second assault rifle and a San Francisco police uniform and badge.

    Fieri's car, a yellow Lamborghini valued at $200,000, made headlines a year ago when it was stolen from a  dealership on Van Ness Avenue.

    Fieri, who was thankful that his yellow sports car was recovered, is best known for his Food Network show, "Guy's Big Bite." He  also hosts NBC's prime time competition show, "Minute to Win It."
