Romanian cops cuff drunk, naked, handless driver

No licence, naturally

Romanian traffic cops in the seaside town of Constanta were rather surprised to discover that the driver of a BMW they pulled for zigzagging across the road had no licence, no hands, no clothes, and was figuratively legless, evz.ro reports.

Aurel Olteanu, 23, tested positive for twice the drink-drive limit, and put his lack of clothes down to a trip to a local nudist beach, which he'd left in a bit of a hurry.

The reason for Olteanu's amputated hands is not noted, but the Beemer was an automatic, which must have made things a bit easier for him.

According to Ananova, police sub-inspector Marius Ghita said: "He had no licence, but told us he had developed his own special way of driving."

Olteanu has been charged with drunk driving and driving without a licence, having apparently avoided a public decency rap. ®
