Nude TV contestant charged for violence

The Local/og · 28 Feb 2012, 07:32

Published: 28 Feb 2012 07:32 GMT+01:00

The man, from Skåne, southern Sweden, is reported to have undressed when he returned to his hotel in central Stockholm, and then asked fellow TV contestants to spank his naked body, as he had been a “naughty boy”, according to the Skånskan newspaper.

Meanwhile, the man whipped himself with a belt.

No one complied with the man’s requests for whipping assistance, and the production team was forced to call the police, who arrived at the hotel to find the man locked in his room. The man would not oblige when police requested that he open the door.

After using the hotel’s master key to force entry into the room, police found the man lying naked on his bed with all the lights turned on.

After acting strangely, the police handcuffed the man, who then began to lurch and kick wildly, resisting arrest violently.

The police were forced to use pepper spray to get control over the man.

Story continues below…

While the alleged incident occurred in March last year, it wasn’t until Monday that the man was formally charged.

He denies the allegations.

A bit strange that the police call continued even after the man was in his own room conducting his behaviour.

I must confess, my favorite part is the the Local's phrase that suggests the police were acting strangely before they handcuffed the man. I also wonder if they really handcuffed him before using the peper spray as suggested by the article.

Ya! The police sound like the agressors! What right do they have to go into his hotel room and use force. There is obviously missing information.
