Man punches pal, pees on pizzas in drunken rage

What began as a harmless night out with fellow drivers at a restaurant in Hallstavik, 100 kilometres north of Stockholm, took a turn for the worse when the 29-year-old truck driver was denied more beer because he was already too drunk, the local Norrtelje Tidning newspaper reported.

Enraged at being cut off by staff at the pizzeria, the driver proceeded to urinate on other diners' food.

His friends then started attacking other guests at the establishment on the belief someone had called police.

The angry driver then lost track of who was friend or foe, knocking flat one his friends who was trying to help the drunken 29-year-old find the door.

While police detained the 29-year-old's punched out friend, the irate driver managed to escape the scene, only to mysteriously turn up in another man's kitchen a short time later, bloodied and wearing only his underwear.

Exactly what happened to the 29-year-old's clothes remains unclear, but along the way he managed to punch an unfortunate passerby in the face with such force that he knocked out the man's dentures, whereupon the mad driver stomped the toothless victim's falsies into the ground.

The proprietor of the kitchen into which the 29-year-old stumbled kindly offered to give the man a ride, only to find himself eating a knuckle sandwich courtesy of the rampaging truck driver as they made their way to the good Samaritan's car, according to the paper.

But the driver's drunken rampage, which took place on a Wednesday night in early August, wasn't over yet.

Later in the evening, the 29-year-old tried to steal a car parked in a nearby driveway.

Unfortunately for the would-be car thief, the vehicle was equipped with an alcolock, preventing him from getting the car started and limiting his flight to a mere five metres.

The drunken driver with a fancy for fisticuffs nearly evaded capture for the evening's escapades, but was eventually tracked down by police after he left his credit card and a pack of cigarettes in the car he'd attempted to steal.

He was finally apprehended at 1am and subsequently charged with two counts of assault and attempted auto theft.

Last week he was convicted on all charges and sentenced to three months in prison.

He was also ordered to pay a total of 25,000 kronor ($3,750) in compensation to two of the men he hit, according to Norrtelje Tidning.
