Striking moment in court of Ghent: defendant starts pumping on one hand to prove innocence

In the incident on John Kennedylaan, the man would have been disturbed by the slow speed of the vehicle in front of him. When he also stuck out his middle finger, the man would have got out and slapped the victim in the face.

The defendant said in court that this is not true. “If I really hit him, he would have been much worse.” He promptly started pumping on one hand, with his other hand on his back. In this way he wanted to prove to the judge that he has a lot of strength.

Despite his striking performance, the man risks community service and a fine. The verdict will be on February 8.
