BERLIN (AP) — A drunk German man who insisted on voting in Sunday’s election despite lacking the necessary documents has landed in jail — after police discovered he was wanted for arrest.
The unidentified 46-year-old tried to cast his ballot in the eastern town of Guben, but was turned away by election officials.
The inebriated would-be voter caused a scene, prompting officials to call police.
German daily Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten reported Monday that officers checked the man’s identity, found that he had a seven-month sentence to serve and promptly arrested him.
