Someone Stole $1.2 Million Worth Of Wine From Goldman Sachs Executive

    A truly bacchanalian scheme we're not sure whether to be horrified or impressed by. On Wednesday it was reported that a former finance douchebag and Personal Assistant to David Solomon (a.k.a. the co-president of Goldman Sachs) had been arrested for a heist that could only happen to, well, the co-president of Goldman Sachs.

    Nicolas De-Meyer, who worked for Solomon from 2014 to 2016, is accused of stealing over $1.2 million worth of rare wine from his banking bigwig boss while he was tasked with transporting the bottles from Solomon's Manhattan apartment to his cellar in East Hampton. Typical.

    The assistant-from-hell allegedly re-routed some pricey bottles to a wine dealer in North Carolina, and is confirmed to have taken seven bottles of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti - worth nearly $20,000 a pop. He was found out in 2016, fired, and then promptly left the country. On Tuesday, he was taken into custody in Los Angeles and a federal court has ordered he be transported to New York to face charges. 

    Talk about a wolf of Wall Street.
