Drunken Joyride On Steamroller Ends Badly

Some police blotter items are just too hard to resist. Here's an example published this morning in Ontario's Sudbury Star:

A 19-year-old Greater Sudbury man remains in stable condition in hospital after a steamroller accident in Bell Park early Sunday.

Traffic Sgt. Gary Lavoie said Monday the man had to undergo emergency surgery to treat a serious leg injury and has yet to appear in court on the charges.

The man was found pinned underneath a steamroller in Bell Park about 3:20 a.m. Sunday.

Investigating officers determined the man had taken the steamroller for a joyride and lost control. The steamroller tipped over on him. The man had been drinking, police say.
