A German student created a major traffic jam in Bavaria after making a rude gesture at a group of Hells Angels motorcycle gang members, hurling a puppy at them and then escaping on a stolen bulldozer.

German police said Monday that after making his getaway from the Hells Angels club, the 26-year-old dumped the bulldozer, causing a 5-kilometre traffic jam near the town of Allershausen, near Munich, local police said.

He then fled to his home nearby where he was apprehended by the police.
