Car dealer workers who took BMW on joyride found guilty

Two former employees of Pacific BMW in Glendale have been found guilty of taking a high-powered sports car off the dealership lot last November and going on a joyride.

During the incident, Artin Yazidjian, in the passenger’s seat, videotaped Vacheh Margoussian driving the car at a high rate of speed down a residential street near the dealership.

The video was later posted on YouTube.

Last week, Margoussian and Yazidjian were each ordered to attend traffic school and pay a $150 fine after they entered no contest pleas on misdemeanor charges and a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge found them both guilty.
