Man accused of assault on ludomaniac following blowjob

Some of the locals would have you believe that Barcelona is the global capital of crazy. Not at all, for, as Holmes remarked in The Adventure of the Copper Beeches, “the lowest and vilest alleys in London[, Barcelona, whatever] do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.” This article from El Punt (source) is an example of the kind of stuff people get up to a bit further north:

Girona.- Pedro Andrés Barco went on trial in Girona yesterday because, according to the public prosecutor, he tried to assault a games addict after giving him a blowjob. The events took place in Ripoll on December 15 1998, where the accused had stopped by mistake. He had taken a train to go to Granollers but took the wrong one and then fell asleep until Ripoll. In order to wait for another train, he went into a bar where he met the ludomaniac, who won a special prize on the fruit machine. To celebrate, the lucky man invited the lost traveller to dine with him in Campdevànol. Up to this point the two men agree, but there are two different versions of what happened on the way back to Ripoll – the restaurant was closed, so they hadn’t eaten.

According to the victim, his new friend gave him a blowjob and then demanded all the money he had with him. According to the accused, it was the games nut who, while driving, pawed him. He managed to flee, but the other ran him over. In fact it was he who first reported the events and, according to the regional police, he still had tyre marks down his back.

This kind of thing happens all the time, although not on my walks.
