What do you do when your electric vehicle is out of juice, and there’s no power outlet nearby? You should never park in a stranger’s front lawn and leech off their electricity for starters. That’s exactly what one Tesla Model 3 owner did in Lake Worth, Floriday. Thankfully, homeowner Phil Fraumeni decided to let the young man off easy. He was first alerted of the vehicle when his gardener asked him in the morning to move the white Tesla on his lawn, and that quickly escalated to a phone call to the police.

Fraumeni waited for a few hours before contacting the local police in hopes that its owner would come back and explain things. Authorities eventually arrived on scene and managed to track down the address of the owner. A young male told police that he was visiting a friend in the neighborhood when the car’s battery died. So, he came up with the bright idea of using an extension cord and plugging it into an electrical socket on Fraumeni’s front lawn, and for approximately 12 hours to boot.
