A sloshed gentleman thought the high-speed train he was traveling on was moving too fast and became aggressive, grabbing a fire extinguisher and smashing a window in hopes of saving the day.
According to USA Today:
Police say passengers said the man took a fire extinguisher off the wall, smashed a glass door separating the cab from the passenger compartment, and told the shocked driver the train was going much too fast and he had to save the passengers.
Federal police said the ICE train operated by Germany's Deutsche Bahn stopped near Frankfurt after the incident Sunday morning. The 30-year-old man from Heideberg, who wasn't identified, was arrested and faces an investigation into dangerous interference in rail traffic, among other things.
Fortunately, his heroic act did not injure any passengers.
