Police arrived at a nightclub on the outskirts of Amberg in Bavaria, Germany, at the weekend to discover an unusual surprise in the gents' lavatories.
Officers were left shocked when they were called to the club on the outskirts of the town in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A 26-year-old man, revealed as Felix T., had thrown a firecracker into a toilet in the club, blowing it to pieces.
The force of the blast completely demolished the lavatory. “Fortunately, no one was injured,” police said. The damage costs, however, will be in the region of €500.
And the police’s surprise didn’t stop there, the alcohol test had another shock in store.
The man's blood level clocked in at 5.24 permille, meaning a 0.524% blood alcohol content. For most people, a reading of 3.5 permille is life-threatening, and very few survive more than 5 permille, let alone still have the capacity to light a firecracker.
Felix T. expressed his remorse: "I am very sorry that it got so out of hand. I will also settle the damage costs as soon as they have been confirmed."
