A 20-year-old druggie was arrested on May 10 following a wild ride through Brighton Beach.

Officials said that Beka Jandieri was picked up after he was seen swerving in and out of lanes in a Mercedes Benz as he sped through Brighton Beach Avenue and Brighton 11th Street.

He then drove the wrong way down a one way street before he came to a stop on Brighton 11th Street. Cops arrived to find the Mercedes empty with the keys in the ignition and the windows down.

They soon discovered that the Mercedes had been reported stolen back on May 1.

Jandieri was soon located and apprehended, charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle and criminal possession of a controlled substance when cops found some heroin stashed in his sneakers.

Where: Brighton 11th Street and Brighton Beach Avenue
