A DRUNK MAN INVADED A SMALL POLISH TOWN WITH A SOVIET TANK
The belief that Adolf Hitler faked his death recently came back to light after a drunk one-man army attempted to invade a small Polish town using a single old tank.
Just before 10pm, residents of Pajeczno, Poland, were rudely awoken by the sound of a Soviet-era tank driving through the sleepy town.
Police were called and arrived in the town to find the tank parked on the side of the road.
Upon investigation, the town breathed a sigh of relief when they found out the driver wasn't Hitler and was, in fact, a drunk 49-year-old.
The man owned the tank and had a license to drive it with one stipulation; it could only be transported using a truck, and under no circumstances be used to invade a town in the middle of the night.
The police later found out that the tank had no insurance, meaning it couldn't even be driven anyway.
This meant army officials had to be called in to move the tank. One problem, they wouldn't be able to arrive until 5am the next day. This left the tank in a state of limbo for over 10 hours whilst police figured out what to do with the tank.
Eventually, the police gave up and told everyone to wait until the army officials could arrive. This allowed the people of Pajeczno to sleep at ease under the watchful eye of a Soviet tank.
The tank has now been placed into storage and the driver is facing up to 2 years in prison, surprisingly only for drink driving.
