In a case for the special branch - fed up neighbours are suspected of putting the brakes on a boy racer after months of being driven barking by his antics - by hoisting his car to the top of a tree.
Road hog Zbigniew Filo, 24 - who doesn't even have a licence - woke to find his souped up white Ford Escort dangling from a huge willow tree in Lubczyna, Poland.
Locals have refused to say who carried out the prank, but have revealed that one villager's mobile crane was borrowed for the night.
Police spokesman Marta Pierko confirmed: "We received a call from a man saying his car was stuck in a tree, and that his neighbours had put it there.
"After inspecting the site we instructed him to remove it from the tree," she added.
One local explained: "Whoever, or whatever it was, it’s probably a good thing as he was a dangerous driver and could have killed someone.
"Perhaps he’ll think twice about his hair-raising driving and about getting a licence or who knows where his next car might end up?"
Now shamefaced Filo has promised to change his driving style.
"I get the message, but I think it was a bit harsh," he said.
