At least it's a story from home that doesn't involve sharks:

Man 'sledges' faulty car

A man in Adelaide's northern suburbs has taken frustration with his car to the extreme in scenes reminiscent of an episode of the classic comedy Fawlty Towers.

Police were called to an address at Salisbury Heights after reports of a man attacking a car with a sledge hammer.

When officers inquired as to why the car was extensively damaged, the owner told them he was frustrated that it would not start.
