The trucker, apparently unable to reach a satisfactory climax, then proceeded to continue to pleasure himself while in the midst of a police interrogation, according to the local Borås Tidning newspaper.

"He was masturbating while the police interrogated him," police prosecutor Åsa Askenbäck told the newspaper.

"He has admitted that he was not paying full attention at the time of the accident. He was playing with himself instead of focusing on the road."

The truck driver was en route from Gothenburg to Borås at around 4am on Tuesday morning. The truck and trailer flipped over when he rammed his vehicle into the central division on route 40 south of Borås.

The upturned vehicle blocked all traffic towards Gothenburg and one lane was closed in the direction of Borås.

The man remained in the vehicle with his hands apparently still clasped around his own gear stick and was subsequently arrested for reckless driving and driving while under the influence of drugs.

The suspicions against the man have now been extended to sexual molestation.

Story continues below…

The German trucker, who is in his thirties, has admitted all of the charges directed against him.

This is a really interesting article, first of its kind, lol, but to be sincere, the guy is really insane, he needs an urgent psychiatric attention.

While being interrogated one police office was shot, thankfully it was not a gun and the said officers uniform has been given for dry cleaning :))

a charge of sexual molestation? Is that possible? So if i like to indulge in hanging myself from the ceiling by my nipples.....does this mean i can be arressted??? What i read here,is that it is ok to masterbate in front of police officers,but not lawfull to touch my own todger!! Outragously funny!
10:24 September 25, 2009 by Nina_
Lol! That was a funny article. :D
12:36 September 25, 2009 by soultraveler3
Pretty sure the sexual molestation charge comes from him masterbating in front of the officers.

I think that it's illegal in most western countries (maybe just most countries) to "force yourself upon others" by doing that or stuff of a similar nature in front of people that you don't know. Or in front of people that you do know but do not welcome it.

Truckers revenge has pulled massive public attention. Involuntary convoy leads to handcuffing of naked suspect still clasping gear stick following unsafe load release and unsuccessful gear change.
