The man had spent the morning of July 10th at the hospital getting an ECG monitor attached to his chest. He had a long history of alcohol abuse and he celebrated his hospital visit by going on a drinking binge and has only vague memories of how he made his way to the parking lot at Öijareds golf club outside of Gothenburg later that day.
When in the parking lot the man proceeded to pull up his shirt, revealing the medical equipment attached to his chest and screamed at terrified golfers that he was a suicide bomber and that he planned to blow up the club.
A witness who was in the parking lot with his nine-year-old daughter at the time reported that the man screamed that they were all "capitalist pigs."
"You think that I am joking but this is serious," the man is reported to have warned according to the newspaper Metro.
The man has now been convicted by Mölndal district court for threat of unlawful conduct among other offences, has been sentenced to probation and ordered to receive treatment for his alcohol abuse.
The man has previously been convicted for hailing a bus with his car while under the influence; he then got on the bus and proceeded to threaten to kill all the passengers.
