Getting your car fixed can be a real headache. But for one Russian doctor, the experience was all just a bit too much. Having scheduled an appointment at the garage to collect his Nissan Navara, he became increasingly irate after being left waiting in reception for 20 minutes. Scroll down for the video
Fear: Customers and staff make a quick exit as they see livid Russian doctor Kustov Michael preparing to smash his way into a Nissan showroom through the window (top right)
Battering ram: The obstetrician bulldozes his way into the building and crashes into one of the pristine Nissans, taking glass and debris with him As his temper boils over, he gets back into his loan car, a 4x4 Suzuki Grand Vitara, and rams it through the showroom window in northern Moscow. CCTV cameras inside capture the moment he bulldozes his way into the building, which is filled with customers, and proceeds to smash into the vehicles on display.

Woman caught on security video stripping hotel room of its TV, picture frames, curtains, bedspread and rugs (but she did she leave the bathrobes?) During the three-minute rampage, the man, named as regular customer Dr Kustov Michael, uses his car like a battering ram. He even slams into a concrete support pillar, leading to fears it might collapse. At one point, a staff member tries to attract his attention by tentatively tapping on the window of the vehicle, but the 40-year-old obstetrician continues with his vendetta.
Carnage: By this point, Michael has barged the vehicles out the way as his anger over having to wait 20 minutes to collect his car at the garage continue to boil over
Destruction: With detritus strewn across the showroom, the doctor eventually makes his way to the back of the building (left) where his vehicle finally get stuck in an office. He has been charged with various offences The carnage only ends when the vehicle gets wedged in an office at the back of the showroom. The father-of-two is currently on house arrest and faces a variey of criminal charges. According to the Huffington Post, three brand new cars were written off and inital figures suggest the damage is more than £20,000. The dealership, Pelican Cars, said the doctor's outburst last Friday was inexplicable. A statement issued to the Daily Telegraph said: 'It is doubtful that the issue of waiting for a car for 20 minutes from the time appointed led the client to be in such a state. 'Further conclusions must be left to the police, prosecutors and courts, and possibly psychiatrists.' No staff or customers were hurt in the incident.
