No arrests were necessary
Police in Sweden said a man who called to report a herd of camels crossing a road assured officers that he was sober.
Investigators said the motorist called police early Monday and said he was traveling on a road in Stockaryd when he had to slam on his brakes to avoid hitting a herd of five camels…
“When the motorist called us, he began by saying he was sober,” Jonkoping police duty Officer Anneli Johnsson Hammo told the Smalands-Tidningen newspaper.
Hammo said the driver determined the camels escaped from a nearby traveling circus and alerted staff.
The camels were cleared from the road by circus workers and the driver was able to continue on his way.
Then, he stopped for a drink or two.
