Drunk driver tries to steal goat, rams car, gets thrashed
What happens when someone is really high after drinking~!
Read this on NDTV Drunk driver tries to steal goat , rams car
A 30-year-old resident of Sion Koliwada was allegedly assaulted with iron rods by a mob near Vakola in Mumbai on June 7.
The police said that the accused, Shatrunjay Waghmare who was driving a Maruti Esteem (MH 01 P 6871), tried to yank a goat from a herd tethered outside Bandra Terminus.
"On seeing this, its owner who was squatting nearby, raised an alarm. Waghmare at once dumped the animal, hopped into his car and prepared to flee," said a police official who requested anonymity.
Dawood, a resident of Kherwadi in Bandra (E) who saw the drama unfold, said, "When the owner started screaming, the man who seemed drunk tried to flee."
In his hurly-burly, Waghmare rammed his car into a motorbike in the narrow, congested lane and tried to speed away. "That's when a group of people, including the biker, started chasing him," said the police official.
On the highway, he rammed into an autorickshaw and two other motorcycles. Four pedestrians also sustained injuries in the melee that ensued.
The crowd caught up with the driver near Vakola. "They pulled him out of the car and assaulted him with iron rods. A few others who were tailing his car on bikes alerted the police. When the crowd saw us, they dispersed," said the police official.
Others pelted his car with stones, damaging it severely. It was not known who owns the Maruti Esteem.
The police, however, said they were not aware of Waghmare's attempt to steal the goat. "When we reached the spot [Vakola], he was being thrashed by the mob. Nobody has filed any robbery complaint," an officer of Vakola police station told MiD DAY. Waghmare, who has been booked for drunk driving, was taken to VN Desai Hospital, Santacruz for a medical check-up where the other injured are being treated.

This is really funny! I guess he wanted fresh mutton after his swig of alcohol. Need to keep an eye out for these kind of maniacs.
