(Newser) – Police in western Germany have freed two men who became entangled with a mannequin and a large remote-controlled car, the AP reports. Officers were called after cries were heard from an apartment in the city of Mainz in the early hours of Saturday. Police found the 58-year-old tenant and a 61-year-old visitor "hopelessly locked together" with the toy car and the mannequin—which was dressed in a knight's costume. Officers were able to free the men, who were too drunk to explain how their unfortunate predicament had come about. According to a police statement, "the whole thing would have remained a funny episode" but the younger man was "more than impolite" and now faces a charge of insulting officers.
