The man, who was under the influence, drove the tractor through the streets and then came to a supermarket. He crashed a passenger car parked nearby and then drove the armored vehicle into the window of the supermarket.
The driver got out of the tractor, entered the supermarket through the shattered window and stole a bottle of wine.
He was soon detained by traffic police officers who arrived on the scene. The suspect is now facing a sentence of up to 12 years in prison.
