This is a headline that has been plastered on newspapers across Germany over the weekend.
According to German newspaper, Der Tagesspiegel, a tourist from Ireland “masturbated” while in police custody, lost consciousness in the back of the car and had to be resuscitated by police.
The tourist, a 31-year-old, was arrested by police at 2am on Saturday night and was found outside a nightclub in the area of Joachimsthaler Strasse.
The man, who was on holidays in Berlin, was described as being “heavily intoxicated” and it is said that police believed he was under the influence of drugs also.
He couldn’t remember where he was staying so he was taken into police custody and this is when the situation got very strange.
First, he was asleep in the back of the car and when he was woken up by the police, he began to masturbate and also “stretched out his bare backside” to the police.
Then, while in custody, it is said that the man stopped breathing and that officers had to provide first aid and a doctor was called also.
He was taken to hospital and on his way, he “rioted” with police again. He has since left hospital and could face assault and resistance charges.
