A man charged with stealing a taxi while drunk after a viral police appeal has been unmasked as a high-flying real estate executive and 'family man' who lives in a multi-million dollar eastern Sydney home.
Brett Henson, 42, is accused of threatening a 54-year-old cab driver in the city's CBD at about 9pm on Friday, November 4, before taking off with his car.

Henson was arrested and charged six days later after CCTV footage of the alleged theft was shared across police social media channels.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal Henson is a Senior Capital Transactions Manager for property developing giant Mirvac and owns a $3.3million house in Bronte.
