Boozy bleating Bavarian locked up
A drunken man who infuriated his neighbours by bleating like a sheep and doing other animal impressions at the dead of night ended up in jail after resisting arrest, German police said Sunday.
The 49-year-old offered his sleeping neighbours a series of performances, mainly sheep impressions, some lasting as long as 20 minutes, at around 10:45 pm (2045 GMT) on Saturday, police in the Bavarian town of Coburg said.
When police tried to get him to stop, the man became "unreasonable and aggressive", reportedly because he wanted to continue his baa-ing. Officers saw no choice but to lock him up for the night.
He had an extremely high blood-alcohol content, authorities said, which, added to charges for disturbing the peace, should lead to a "beastly hangover", police said in their tongue-in-cheek statement.
