A cyclist nicked for being drunk in charge of a bike returned to the police station after downing a second skinful - to ram the nick with his car.
Police has stopped Markus Becher when they saw him weaving unsteadily through traffic in Braunschweig, Germany, and charged him with being drunk in charge of a vehicle after he failed a blood test at the station.
But three hours later he was back - driving his car at high speed straight to the entrance to the nick.
"He had apparently been drinking again and began to feel hard done by so he came back for his revenge. He very nearly came right through the wall," said one officer.
Parts of the station have now been evacuated while builders assess the damage, believed to be around 30,000 GBP. A police patrol car was also destroyed in the smash.
A police spokesman confirmed: "A 37-year-old man was seriously injured in the crash and had to be cut free from the car by fire fighters. We are waiting for the opportunity to interview him."
