Meanwhile, in the bad to worse department...

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German woman on her way to pay respects to a dead relative plowed across the cemetery drunk in her car, smashing up headstones and tombs before she ground to a halt in someone's grave, police said Tuesday.

The woman drove into the graveyard in the southern town of Mitterteich on a track running through it but veered off as she struggled to control her vehicle, local police said.

"Eventually she ended up stuck in a grave and couldn't get out, so we had to pull her out," a police spokesman said. "She said she'd come to visit one of her relatives' graves."
