WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida man drove his Ferrari off a dock and let it sink into the water on purpose.

Palm Beach police say it's unclear why 48-year-old James Mucciaccio Jr. drove his luxury car into the water the day after Christmas.

Police say he drove off the road, went through an open gate and parked his car on the dock. He tried to reverse the Ferrari before driving it off the dock where the car sank about 30 feet (9 meters) to the bottom.

Authorities fished it out of the water. The Sun Sentinel reports Mucciaccio was not injured.
