Irate driver's showroom tantrum

SHOWROOM RAMPAGE: We don't condone behaviour like this, but having to wait three hours to pick up your ride would be enough to make anyone go over the edge.

Having to wait a while at a dealership to pick up your ride can be frustating; time slowly passing, old car magazines on the table, wondering what would happen if you, if you...

...went berserk, as did an irate Russian with devastating results.

A Moscow gynacologist, possibly in the throes of a nervous breakdown, decided the auto dealer which sent him over the edge was going down with him.


The doctor was supposed to collect his Nissan Navara but after waiting for three hours decided to use his Suzuki Grand Vitara as a battering ram.

The 35-year-old charged the store front of the Pelican vehicle dealership in Moscow and, as shown in this YouTube video, laid waste the showoom and four vehicles. When his Vitara broke down in a cloud of smoke a security team broke the driver’s side window, pulled him out, and tied him up.

After being restrained the man pleaded that he was a father and that he had "problems".  The police were called and the doctor put under house arrest. He could go to jail for five years.
