The man who drove his BMW down the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art told police Friday he could explain everything: His brakes failed.
Emin Faki, 20, turned himself in Friday afternoon at Central Detectives after video surfaced online of his car driving up and down the famed Rocky steps the night before.
In the video, the BMW bumps slowly down the steps and attempts to back up several times. At several points, the brake lights appear to come on.
But Faki told police his brakes and transmission were giving him trouble, police said. He said he lost control of the car while at the top of the steps and began drifting sideways.
