According to the Albanian Daily News, at noon local time on April 25, a 32-year-old man drove down a guardrail and broke into the crowded Scampe Square in the centre of Tirana, the Albanian capital.
The police who arrived at the scene immediately arrested and interrogated the perpetrators. It was found that the man was driving the vehicle he had rented the day before.
On the morning of the 25th, he bought 5 grams of narcotics in a park, took 2 grams, and then drove to the polling station to vote in the parliamentary elections.
He then drove to the centre of Tirana, where he collided with three other cars until he knocked down a guardrail and broke into Scandpei Square, where he was subdued by righteous members of the public as he tried to attack pedestrians in the square.
The perpetrator said he only remembered being subdued, and that the experience of a previous drive-by crash was a blank in his brain. Police said a small amount of marijuana was found during a search of the suspect.
