Monitoring the hooligans

From: NPE
A 22-year-old man, Lukasz S., was arrested at 3am this Thursday morning after going on a mini-rampage through the centre of Warsaw. An alert CCTV operator spotted the young man walking along ul. Grojecka in the company of a female, when the man began attacking a parked car for no apparent reason.

The camera operator called police and tracked the young man on cameras, recording as he attacked a further two vehicles. Police then arrived at the scene and arrested the startled young man as he waited at a bus stop. A breathalyser showed he had 0.25% alcohol in his bloodstream.

He succeeded in smashing the rear windscreen of a Skoda and the back door on a Mercedes. The owners of the vehicles have assessed the damage at PLN 1400.
