Drunken Swedish artist forgets painting four women
14:47 CET+01:00
An artist from southern Sweden has been charged with assault for spray painting four women while in a drunken stupor.

The 35-year-old artist told investigators that he was too drunk to remember the incident, which took place in nearby Lund in November of last year, the Metro newspaper reports.

The artist explained that he first consumed nine strong beers before heading out to purchase a can of spray paint.

But before he could make it home to commence on a fresh artistic endeavor, the drunken artist began spraying passers-by with the newly purchased paint.

According to the indictment presented in Malmö District Court on Monday, a total of four unlucky women were sprayed in the drunken Friday the 13th attack, including one who was hit in the face and another whose stroller received an unwanted partial coat of new paint.

The 35-year-old's wanton session of public spray painting means he will face charges of assault, making illegal threats, and vandalism.
