Nov. 18 (UPI) -- A 20-year-old man who allegedly drove his BMW down the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps, immortalized by Sylvester Stallone in Rocky, has been charged with reckless endangerment.

Philadelphia police say that Emin Faki told them he couldn’t stop the car because the brakes failed. After getting the car checked out by a mechanic, police filed the criminal charge.

The Oct. 24 stunt was recorded and posted online and Faki turned himself in on Thursday. He was arraigned on Friday and a preliminary hearing about the case has been scheduled for Dec. 18. The judge instructed Faki to stay away from the museum in the meantime.
