Slammer Drunk

A trucker who peed on diners' pizzas when he was kicked out of a restaurant for being drunk has been jailed for three months after a series of violent bust ups that left him covered in blood wearing just his pants.

The 29-year-old driver Brandon Norberg saw red when he was refused more beer at a pizzeria in Hallstavik, Sweden, and jumped on a table to urinate on other customers' meals.

Then he attacked other diners and decked one of his drunking pals who tried to get him to leave the bar.

The trucker fled before police arrived - but punched one passer by so hard his false teeth fell out and then stamped on them.

He later emerged in a villager's kitchen - by now wearing just his pants - knocking him to the ground and stealing his car keys.

But he only managed to flee for 15 ft before the vehicle's automatic alco-lock turned off the ignition after sensing alcohol on his breath.

"He wasn't hard to track. You just had to follow the trail of punched noses and broken teeth.

"No-one knows what happened to his clothes. He couldn't remember," said one policeman.

Brandon Norberg was found after he'd left his credit card and other ID in the car he'd tried to steal, police told the court.

Judges sentenced him to three months' jail after he pleaded guilty to multiple assault charges and attempted car theft.

He was also ordered to pay a 2,000 GBP compensation to his victims.
