The man on the ground was violent


Linda Genborg 2012-04-27

The man in the picture published on Göteborgs-Posten where three ticket inspectors are holding a person down on the ground, had acted violently before the picture was taken. According to the ticket inspectors, the man was under the influence, drank beer on the tram and acted threateningly.

According to a report that was filed after the incident the inspectors had asked the man, who was drinking and spilling beer on-board a tram, to get off the tram at the next stop. But the man refused and started screaming. Then he threatened a ticket inspector and two passengers. Before he got off at Chalmers tram stop he punched one of the inspectors in the stomach and tried to hit one of the others.

At the tram stop he tried to throw a beer bottle at the head of one of the ticket inspectors, but missed and instead threw the bottle towards one of the other inspectors. The inspectors held the man down on the ground until the police arrived.

Göteborgs-Posten could not get hold of the man for a comment.
