The holiday season may be a festive one, but one guy was clearly partying a bit too hard in Columbia, South Carolina this week. The inebriated man reportedly drove his car directly into a stationary AH-1F Cobra attack helicopter on display in support of a veterans charity run by the Celebrate Freedom Foundation. The incident first hit the internet a few days ago when the South Carolina Highway Patrol uploaded a short video of the Cobra after the crash.
