Police in Brno on Thursday night fined a man who was steering his car with his legs through the sun roof while sitting on top of the car. The 21-year-old man, accompanied by two friends, was driving his car on the parking lot outside one of the local supermarkets. When police arrived at the scene and flagged him down, the driver tried to get back into his seat but crashed into the police car in the process, a police spokeswoman said. The young man was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The police handed him a fine of 2,000 crowns, or around 100 US dollars, and instructed him about road traffic rules, the spokeswoman added.
