Porsche driver nabs boy for dandelion attack: police
An outraged German Porsche driver hand-delivered an eight-year-old boy to the police after he and a friend pelted his beloved car with dandelions, authorities said Tuesday.
The 47-year-old man from Hittfeld in northern Germany has been charged with false imprisonment, police said, after he bundled the terrified prankster into his car, furious at what he said was a "dangerous stunt".
Authorities praised the swift action of an eagle-eyed pedestrian who called police when she saw the boy being forced into the car against his will.
The boys were later picked up at the police station by their parents.
"The man realised only later how petrified the two eight-year-olds were. They calmed down a little bit when their parents arrived," said the police.
"They will not forget this experience in a hurry," said the police statement.
