Sausage strife in Germany: Pedestrian hits BMW with bologna

BERLIN (AP) " A BMW driver brought out the wurst in a pedestrian in Germany, who dented the luxury vehicle with a 30 centimeter (foot-long) bologna saying the car was going too fast and endangering his son.

Police in the eastern city of Neubrandenburg said Wednesday the sausage strife broke out over the weekend when the 49-year-old man and his 8-year-old son were crossing the street.

As a 47-year-old BMW driver tried to scoot quickly into a nearby parking spot, the pedestrian yelled "stop" but after the car didn't slow, he threw the sausage he was carrying at it.

The bologna triumphed over Bavarian engineering, leaving a small dent in the BMW's back right door.

Police say the pedestrian is suspected of causing property damage.

The bologna was not seized as evidence.
