Chutzpah, redefined

The canonical example of Chutzpah* is "A boy, having just been convicted of murdering his parents, begs the judge for leniency because he is an orphan".

This, however, may have just been topped by an Italian hit-and-run driver:
Woman runs over a child, drives away, then returns to demand from the child's parents payment for the damage to her car
*A Yiddish word for gall, brazen nerve, incredibly effrontery, plus arrogance
