This is the moment a drunk French tourist repeatedly falls to the ground as he tries to flying kick the wing mirrors off parked cars on a historic street.

The Frenchman, whose name has not been released, was caught on CCTV cameras vandalising vehicles in the trendy Kazimierz district of Poland’s second city of Krakow.

Police were alerted after the man, who was so drunk he fell over twice while trying to break off mirrors with flying kicks, was spotted by a guard at the notorious Montelupich prison nearby.

The guard was shocked to see the man going out of his way to damage parked cars as he made his way along the street in Krakow’s historic Jewish quarter.

Cops soon arrested the 32-year-old man, who damaged a total of six cars during his short journey, who told them he had come to Krakow for a holiday.

But, after a night out where he drank far more than he should have done, he ended up damaging the vehicles for reasons he could not explain.

Krakow Police spokesman Sebastian Glen revealed: “The car owners estimated their losses at 10,000 PLN (2,000 GBP).”

And the Frenchman was ordered to compensate them all after he sobered up and pleaded guilty to criminal damage. 

Montelupich prison was infamously used by the Gestapo during World War II. It is now a temporary arrest and detention centre.
