Tanked soldier takes 2 joyrides in Germany

BERLIN (AP) - Police say one joyride in a light tank wasn't
enough for a drunken British soldier in Germany.
Police in Celle say the 18-year-old stole a small light tank
early Friday and rumbled out of his base toward nearby Bergen - but
drove off the road after 500 yards (meters).
Undaunted, he walked back to his base and commandeered a second
tank. This time, he was spotted by a British military police
patrol.
As the patrol tried to stop him, he lost control and drove into
a tree. Military police then arrested him.
German police say a breathalyzer test showed an alcohol
concentration of 0.1 percent. The blood alcohol limit in Germany is
0.05 percent.
Police declined to identify the soldier, and Britain's military
could not immediately be reached for comment.
