Woman fined for slapping butt grabber

LUND, Sweden, March 26 (UPI) -- A Swedish woman who slapped a man she accused of grabbing her read end was convicted on an assault charge.

The 23-year-old woman, who said she only slapped the man because he grabbed her rear end at the Glorias nightclub in Lund during the summer, said the verdict "goes to show that it's OK for guys to grab girls any way they want," The Local.se reported Tuesday.

The court said the woman was subject to "serious provocation," but the slap, which broke the man's nose, did not qualify as self-defense.

The woman had attempted to press sexual assault charges against the man, but the complaint was dropped by police due to a lack of evidence.

The woman was given a suspended sentence and a $380 fine. She was also ordered to pay $286 in damages to the man.
