Squeezing penis with hot iron 'not assault': court

Squeezing penis with hot iron 'not assault': court

The hair-raising episode unfolded in January 2011 when the 31-year-old man got drunk with his ex-girlfriend and another female acquaintance in a flat in Halmstad in western Sweden.

As his ex-girlfriend sat on the couch straightening her hair, the man suddenly asked to have his penis "straightened", wanting her to place the hair iron around his sex organ, the local Hallands Posten newspaper reported.

"Do it, do it, do it," the man said, according to the woman's statement to police.

While the woman at first resisted, she eventually grew tired of the 31-year-old continually grabbing his penis and waving it around in the air and decided to give the man's member a scorching squeeze with her warmed-up flat iron.

Following the "stupid" stunt, the 31-year-old simply laughed and asked the other woman for some ice.

He later testified in court, however, that having his penis pressed in a scalding-hot hair iron left him suffering in pain for nearly three weeks after the incident.

A few hours following the sex-organ squeeze, the drunken 31-year-old then got in an argument with his ex-girlfriend, who eventually slapped him, prompting the man to head-butt her so hard she tumbled down to the floor.

He then proceeded to hit her repeatedly in the face, resulting in an assault charge also being filed against him.

The man claimed that violent reaction to the slap was simply a reflexive response.

He explained that his hard life had required him to develop such survival instincts, without which he'd likely be dead.

In issuing its ruling on the case, the court found that since the man had asked the woman to put his penis in the hair iron in the first place, she could hardly be culpable in the caper.

While the court acquitted the hot-iron wielding woman, it nevertheless found the 31-year-old guilty of assault for the vicious head-butt which took place later in the evening.

Sound like typical Swedish trash ...

Any man that would head butt and repeatably hit a woman in the face is a coward.

This guy should be given a lengthy jail term.

Any man that would hit a women for any reason other than to save himself is a coward.

You know who you are.

I am beyond words to describe how I feel after reading this article..... You couldn't make this stuff up.

She should have squeezed his c0ck with the hot iron and then shoved it up his ar5e... What an idiot.

What a nice treatment for a drunk pig. Getting drunk does not mean that people should lose their common senses (a typical swedish behavior). Next time, you will not drop your brain in the bottle of liquor.

This is why Swedes drink so much. Terribly bored and need the anesthetic to attempt anything that appeals.

Swedens version of corrective therapy methinks.

Now had she completed the treatment with a nice blow job, maybe the little fellow would have cooled down nicely, rather than behave like a demented,overheated prick.

Apparenlly it got well cooked, shrivelled up and now has the appearance of a chipstick.

Poor chap could easily have lost his marbles as well,... dear oh dear,.. I see he did.

Shame !! TL this article lacks it has not really "aroused" the poetry in your readers !!

Thats not how you make hot dogs
21:32 May 4, 2012 by Liquidmonkey
taking the logic of the court room even further, you could say someone is not guilty of shooting someone if the person 'asked' to be shot.

personally i think the head butt is ok but it should have ended there as it should be seen as self defence.

either way, this is one weird article that might become a movie one day!

"personally i think the head butt is o.k. by me", are exactly you're words, not a misquote at all.

YOU said the head butt was o.k., what the hell other meaning could be derived from it?

You say i missed the point, yet you did not clarify.

How come it's ok for a woman to slap a man, but when he responds with a slap or a fist in the face, it's not ok? I mean equality right? Then, if you're a woman and have the nerve to hit someone, expect to be hit back.
21:09 May 5, 2012 by maxbrando
I guess this means that mashing her nipples in a thing like this is ok too. No?

"survival instincts"...that's a bunch of bologna...he asked for it ...lock his dumb ass up...:)

Wow, most of the commenters are trashier than this couple and they are pretty hard to beat.

Everyone in this relationship is just totally dysfunctional.

How can it EVER be okay to burn someone's dick, regardless of it being a request from a drunk punk?

It doesn't justify him beating her up, but sure as hell she should have been sentenced, too!
