Video: Drunk, naked driver goes on rampage in Russia
Man - upset over relationship - smashed 12 cars during rampage
MOSCOW — Russian police say a drunk and naked driver has wreaked havoc in central Moscow, damaging 12 cars before being caught by police.
The city police said they started pursuing the man Sunday after he ignored a road sign banning a turn and refused orders to stop. In the ensuing chase, the motorist nearly hit a school bus, rammed through a police vehicle and smashed several other cars before being caught. When police got him he was completely naked.
Footage broadcast by Russian television stations showed him lying on the pavement and shouting "don't cover me!" to officers who tried to cover him with clothes.
The man said he came from the ex-Soviet nation of Moldova and was in distress over an unhappy relationship.
