Police chase naked gun wielding man

Austrian police staged a major alert after reports of a naked man carrying a gun running around in the snow in the Moedling area just south of the capital Vienna.

By the time police arrived the man had vanished but an intensive search by officers revealed that he had taken shelter in a flat in the region near a school and a kindergarten.

Enquiries revealed that the 39-year-old lived in the property together with his 29-year-old girlfriend and police arranged for a trained negotiator to try and persuade the man to give himself up.

After a three-hour stand-off the man gave himself up without a fight and police who then entered the flat also discovered the 29-year-old woman as well as a large amount of alcohol, guns and a significant quantity of drugs.

Police found both were at least five times over the legal limit for driving and both were arrested and face charges of illegal weapon ownerships and possession of drugs.
