AMSTERDAM – A 27-year-old Dane tore in his car across a campsite in Amsterdam after he had drunk alcohol, smoked a couple of joints and eaten a magic mushroom. He narrowly missed a few tents in which campers and their children were sleeping. They escaped injury by a hair’s breadth, according to the Amsterdam police.

The Dane went into town with a couple of friends on Friday night. He first downed a couple of alcoholic drinks, smoked cannabis and had a fresh magic mushroom in a cannabis café. Once he had returned to the campsite Zeeburg he got into his car and embarked on his highly dangerous car race at the campsite.
 
The man first drove across a number of concrete blocks whereby he lost some parts of his car, including his bumper, then tore past a few tents and next drove across the blocks again. Whereupon he lost control over his car and came to a standstill in the shrubs at just a few centimetres distance from a camping van and a tap.

Campers who had meanwhile woken up managed to keep him in check until the police arrived, who arrested him. He was taken to hospital in an ambulance. Police officers had to keep the man under control during the ride.

After he had slept it off, the Dane had to pay a penalty of EUR 430 and then was allowed to leave. He also had to pay EUR 20 to the owner of the campsite. The man said he could remember absolutely nothing about his madcap ride at the campsite.
