Drunk Russian steals tank and crashes it into supermarket to get more wine
A Russian man has taken dangerous driving to a new level by crashing a stolen tank into a supermarket, allegedly while drunk.
The Guardian reports that the man stole the tank from a military driving school in the far northern Murmansk region.
The unidentified man apparently took the armoured transport vehicle for a joyride through his small town of Apatity, near the Russian border with Finland.
Local News agencies reported that he badly damaged a parked car before crashing into the front of a supermarket.
He then allegedly exited the vehicle and attempted to steal a bottle of wine before being arrested, according to local news website Hibyiny.com.
Hibiny.com posted a photo of the smashed storefront and stolen tank to Twitter.
No word yet as to what the man will be charged with.
