A 23 year-old man has been fined by a German court after drugging his girlfriend so that he some more video games with a friend.


The Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung report (via The Local) that the unnamed man committed the crime last year, when his girlfriend arrived home late to find him playing console games with a buddy.

She’d been hoping for a quiet night’s rest, not two men shouting at a TV, so the man prepared her a drugged cup of tea. She slept until noon the next day.


“Then I got up and drove to work although I was nodding off again and again,” the woman—now the guilty party’s ex-girlfriend—told the judge.

Having admitted the crime first to the woman, and then the judge, the man was fined €500. “Your girlfriend slept long and deeply”, the Judge said, “which didn’t harm her, but this is certainly a premeditated bodily harm.”

Now, generally speaking I don’t like to think to much on things like this but, um... this is kinda fucked up right? I mean he drugs his own girlfriend, then he’s like whatevs, then the court is like “eh, here a slap on the wrist”. I mean I guess our(Murica’s) system of justice is specifically harsh but idk, this seems like getting off light.
