A court has fined a man 500 Euros after he admitted to drugging his now-ex girlfriend so that he could continue playing an online video game with a friend.
“I only put four or five drops into her tea,” the man told the court in Castrop-Rauxel. The incident happened in August 2014 when the woman arrived home from work at 10 p.m. Rather than spend time with his girlfriend, he wanted to keep gaming. The records show that she slept until the middle of the following day. Her ex-boyfriend then admitted to her that the tea was drugged.
“Then I got up and drove to work although I was nodding off again and again,” the 24-year-old victim told the judge. She also mentioned that drugs were the reason that the couple broke up shortly after the incident.
The judge was quick to lecture the man on the dangers of what he did:
“Your girlfriend slept long and deeply, which didn’t harm her, but this is certainly a premeditated bodily harm,” he said in court.
The man admits it was a terrible choice, but said he has turned his life around since.
“It was stupid, but now I’m on a straight path,” he said. Let’s hope the straight path includes not getting so engrossed with your Xbox that you need to illegally drug other human beings to find time to play with it.
