Astoria drunk makes quite a spectacle
From Village Voice:
"My roommate Jill Hanner and I were enjoying a peaceful night at home when suddenly a drunk guy drives a vehicle into some gated private property behind my apartment and begins ramming it into piles of wood and metal. We called the police and informed them what was taking place. The car quickly catches on fire. The drunk guy pounds the car with pieces of metal. He climbs back into the car honks the horn and it blows out in a firey puff. The drunk guy begins pushing his fire engulfed car backwards while yelling and swearing. A second guy grabs him from the inferno minutes before an explosion takes place. The FDNY begin dousing the flames and a second explosion is heard. The NYPD arrive and the drunk guy starts running from the scene. The police quickly stop him, handcuff him and throw him in their van."
