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.

[I made that part up].
