A man was arrested in Nanjing, Jiangsu province after he set his Volkswagen Beetle on fire because he was feeling cold while sitting on the ground enjoying one-too-many drinks with his friends.
Surveillance footage shows that the man, in his 20s, picked a load of grass and put it on the car around 6 a.m. before setting it on fire and fleeing the scene.
Apparently he was so wasted at the time, he had no idea what he did until police arrived at his house the next day. That’s when it all came back to him.
“I thought burning the car would keep me warm,” he recalled. “I left after the fire became big because it got too hot.”
