A 23-year old woman in Sweden was convicted for assault after she slapped a man who allegedly grabbed her butt, even though the court admitted that she was subjected to a ‘serious provocation.’
The woman kept maintaining that she acted in self defense after the 27-year old man grabbed her butt in Glorious nightclub in Lund during the summer, but the Lund District club ruled that the slap – which broke the man’s nose – was too strong to be classified as self-defense.
Therefore, the court found her guilty of assault and slapped her with a $380 fine. The ass grabber – who sued the woman – demanded $3,800 in damages, but the court awarded him only $286.
‘This goes to show that it’s okay for guys to grab girls any way they want,’ the 23-year-old woman told the local Metro newspaper.
