The dispute escalated in front of the Pacifico restaurant in Lucerne.
In mid-January 2022, a dispute broke out in Lucerne, which escalated and finally ended with several broken bones for a guest. Now the case has been heard before the Lucerne Criminal Court.
It started in the stairwell of the Pacifico restaurant. The initially verbal argument between a guest and a bouncer was then shifted outside. The man struggled as he was carried out. The bouncer pushed him to the ground, with the man breaking his ankle, as “20 minutes” reports.
Then the bouncer, who prosecutors said was “physically superior,” sat on the man who was lying on his stomach on the floor. The guest had not physically defended himself at the time, but insulted and yelled at the bouncer.
This led to the defendant beginning to bang the guest’s head on the floor with full force. He hit his nose twice. After that, the bouncer sat on the guest’s stomach and held his arms. Finally, he pressed a can of pepper spray in his face. All the man could do was scream.
The victim suffered traumatic brain injury, a nasal tip fracture, a loosened tooth, and a rib and ankle fracture. He underwent surgery and was unable to work for three months.
The bouncer was found guilty and sentenced to a suspended sentence of 18 months, with a three-year probationary period. He also has to bear the costs of the proceedings. (lrc)
