WXYZ Detroit reports that a 28-year-old man from Waterford decided to go on a joyride with a Tesla that he was test driving from Somerset Mall. He not only took it up to high speeds on the freeway but he was also on Facebook live documenting the whole thing. Troy Police received several calls on the afternoon of January 8th regarding a
...red 2019 Tesla S going south of I-75 east of Adams doing around 130 mph.
