12 January 2018

A Russian man stole an armored vehicle north of the Arctic circle and rammed it into a supermarket, where he stole a bottle of red wine, according to the BBC.

Local media reports the man was drunk, and was detained by shoppers who chased him from the store.

Police said the man commandeered the armored personnel carrier from a local driving school that teaches driving skills to future army conscripts. In a surprise to nobody, witnesses reported the driver was already inebriated when he crashed the combat vehicle into the store.

A drunken man on Wednesday commandeered an armored vehicle and crashed it into a store's window in northwestern Russian Federation, hurting no one, police said. Regional news agency FlashNord reported that the man was having trouble operating the vehicle and had crashed into a Daewoo auto before ramming into the shop front.

At least one auto was damaged during the escapade, during which the vehicle was driven erratically through the city before attempting to batter itts way into the store.

The man left with a stolen bottle of wine, but was later arrested by police. A man enduring Arctic temperatures in Murmansk, a city in northwest Russian Federation, was desperate for a bottle of wine.
