Now that’s a provocation defence

The SMH reports:

A young Greek woman who allegedly set fire to a drunken British tourist’s genitals in self defence has become an overnight hero in Greece, local media reports say.

The 26-year-old, who has been cheered in public for her actions, is defending charges of causing bodily injuries to the 23-year-old Briton and endangering private property.

She allegedly set fire to the man’s penis and testicles in a nightclub on the island of Crete after he allegedly waved his genitals at a number of women and tried to force her to touch him.

I’m not condoning anyone’s genitals being set on fire, but it is hard to have a lot of sympathy for the victim!

A police statement said the British man allegedly took down his trousers and waved his genitals at a number of girls.

He then targeted the 26-year-old Greek woman, “forcefully fondling” her and asking her to grab his genitals.

Police said the woman asked the man to leave her alone but when he wouldn’t, she poured the alcoholic drink Sabucco over his penis and testicles.

When that also failed to stop the man’s advances, the woman took a lighter and set fire to the man’s genitals, local media reported.

Personally I would have recommended calling the cops or delivering some quick swift kicks.
