Man moons and throws puppy at Hells Angels bikers

Published: 14 Jun 2010 11:44 GMT+02:00

The 26-year-old drove onto the biker clubhouse grounds on Sunday afternoon in Allershausen, a town just north of Munich, daily tz reported on Monday.

There the Munich student pulled down his Bermuda shorts, mooning a group of bikers before throwing a puppy at them, the paper said.

Then the man fled the scene, stopping at an autobahn construction site to steal a front loader, which he attempted to drive to Munich.

But his slow pace caused a 5-kilometre traffic jam, the paper reported.

After making it just one kilometre along the highway, the 26-year-old hitched a ride with a truck, which let him off in Eching, not far from Munich.

Police lost track of him for a while there, but they quickly located him again, finding out that he had neglected to take his medication for depression.

He was checked into a psychiatric clinic for treatment. Meanwhile the puppy he tossed at the bikers is being cared for by a Freising animal shelter.

The bikers should have caught that idiot and threw him around as well. What a butt hole.

Sounds like something that would happen in the US.

I Guess that's why he was running.. To evade the angered bikers... Question is, who let this idiot off his chain... (the 26 year old)

He probably believes all the hype and had a death-wish. The bikers were probably looked at eachother and said, "what's up with that idiot and why is he abusing puppies?"

This man is obviously mentally ill, which was confirmed by the authorities.

Random events involving people with mental illness occur all over the world and are certainly not limited to the U.S. He neglected to take his meds for depression, although it seems like his diagnosis should be far more complex and serious than depression, especially since he was capable of treating an animal so cruelly. Hopefully, now he will receive an accurate diagnosis and get the medical attention he desperately needs.

Why doesn't German Hell Angels spell out "Hells Angels" on their jackets in German? That's what I would like to know...

Just to keep you confused ;-)

Which puppy are you referring to? The 26th year old or the stupid dog?

Hate to break it to you marxist anti-americans in euroland, but puppy throwing has yet to make it to the United States.

I didn't know there were Hells Angels in Germany. It must be a great burden for them because in the US they favor Nazi paraphernalia which would get them jailed in the FGR.

The Chapter location is in the bottom panel on the jacket back. It's hidden in the photo. Anyone know what it says?

Another quality cultural export from the USA!
