Drunken Austrian Rides ATV into Hotel Lobby

Here’s some friendly advice from the always wise editors at ATV.com: If you’ve had a few drinks, don’t hop on your ATV. Bad things will surely follow.

According to a story in the Austrian Independent, after downing six Euro-strength beers an Austrian man hopped on an ATV, rode into a hotel lobby (where he paused to pose for some pictures no less) and proceeded to head back out the parking lot and run over some motorcycles that were looking at him the wrong way.

Believe it or not, police were able to track down this criminal genius shortly after he left the scene no foot. The 40-year-old faces traffic charges and a substantial bill after causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage during his joyride.

We’re sure his parents are very proud.
