You may still be recovering from an eventful New Year’s Eve – but one man will still be paying the price well into 2018.
A drunk reveller racked up a £1,640 taxi fare after ordering the driver through three countries on New Year’s Eve.
The man in his 40s, who has not been named, sent the driver 372 miles from Copenhagen in Denmark, through Sweden, and finally to Norway’s capital, Oslo. The journey took more than six hours.
But once he arrived at his home in Oslo, he refused to pay the driver and staggered into bed.
The furious cabbie’s battery went flat outside the house and he called the police.
Oslo Police said the found the man asleep in bed and, after officers woke him, he agreed to pay the fare – 18,000 Norwegian kroner. He has no previous criminal record.
A recovery vehicle was called to assist the taxi driver.
Police told the bizarre tale in a series of tweets on Monday, most of which were quickly liked by hundreds of people.
