Russian Man Steals Tank, Crashes Into Shop To Get More Wine

After detaining the man, officials said police determined that he was drunk.

Police said the man commandeered the armored personnel carrier from a local driving school that teaches driving skills to future army conscripts.

The unidentified man apparently took the armoured transport vehicle for a joyride through his small town of Apatity, near the Russian border with Finland.

Unable to turn around in a narrow street and having crushed a auto parked nearby, the man rammed the tank into the front of a convenience store. Photos from the scene showed that he crushed at least one auto - a Daewoo. Reuters notes that witnesses at the scene "did not seem particularly disturbed by the incident". Here, he chose to jump out of the vehicle and into the shop to steal a bottle of wine, the local online Hibinform.ru reports.
