Ad Hoc Drunk Tank

MOSCOW -- A man in the northwestern Vologda region chained his drunken wife to the wall of a cattle barn to sober her up after a two-week drinking binge, Interfax reported Friday.

After a week locked up in the cattle barn, the wife said she was "very glad her husband stopped her intoxication and took away her inclination toward the bottle," local police were quoted as saying by Interfax. The woman declined to press charges against her husband.

Local prosecutors did not find fault with the man's actions, the news agency reported.
