PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan’s car was stolen after her husband, Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell, left the keys inside.
WPRO-AM reports that Pell was running late for an event when he dropped the keys to the Toyota Prius between the seats of the car, which was parked in front of the couple’s East Side Providence home. Pell could not easily reach the keys. He closed the car door and left with Kwan for the event.
According to police, Kwan could not find the car the next morning. The couple drove around the neighborhood looking for the car before reporting it stolen early Wednesday evening.
Pell, the grandson of the late U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell, faces Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Providence Mayor Angel Taveras in the Democratic Primary.
