    Slumbering English Soccer Fans Block Road

    MAINZ, Germany (AP) -- A pair of English fans went for a ride in their sleep, police said Sunday, failing to wake up when their van crashed into a parked car.

    The two failed to pull the hand brake or leave their Ford Transit in gear when they went to sleep in the vehicle on a street in Mainz, west of Frankfurt.

    At about 1 a.m. Saturday, the van rolled across the road and collided with a parked car. It came to a halt in the middle of the street, blocking traffic.

    The two England fans were blissfully oblivious, police said. Only after officers rocked and banged on the vehicle did one of them eventually roll down the window.

    Police pushed the van back across the road and applied the brakes to prevent a repeat.

    The two fans had been drinking heavily, police said.

    In another incident involving a drunken Briton, Munich police said a Scottish resident was arrested Saturday at a fan festival in the city's Olympic Park after raising his kilt and exposing himself to passers-by - including a police officer.

    The man was taken to a police cell, where he tried to bite an officer's arm, a police statement said. He was released from detention after sobering up.

    Nice to see that the local beer agreed with the fans - always better when they fall asleep instead of getting into fights :lol:

    Not sure that the idea of biting a coppers arm was very smart - lucky he got let out after trying that little stunt !
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
