Police arrested Cyndi Lauper’s 24-year-old son Thursday after allegedly finding him sitting in the driver’s seat of a stolen 2014 Mercedes Benz in New York City, according to TMZ.
Declyn Lauper’s car was discovered illegally double parked at 1:40 a.m. at the corner of West 140th Street and Broadway, which prompted the police to investigate further, TMZ reported Saturday.
Lauper has since been charged with felony unauthorized use of a vehicle. The New York City Police Department keyed in his plates, which were registered to a different car that was reported stolen in the Bronx in 2020, according to TMZ. Lauper was given a desk appearance ticket for unlawful possession of stolen property and will attend a future court date, reported the outlet.
