€4,000 for hitting policeman

The incident happened in Mallorca's Port de Soller.

The two youths who hit a policeman when he intervened in a mass fight in Port de Soller have admitted to the courts in Palma that they were in the wrong.


The two young men declared themselves guilty and accepted the fines and the compensation pay of €4,000 to the policeman.

The events took place in the Port of Soller in August of 2012 when there was a mass fight outside a popular local nightspot; the local policeman, who was off duty at the time, intervened for the safety of all those concerned and tried to calm them down.

Unfortunately, one of the brawlers took this rather badly and started punching the policeman breaking his eardrum in the process.

He had to go to the hospital and has subsequently had two surgeries to try and reconstruct his broken eardrum.

Before the trial even started the men admitted their guilt and saved the courts a lot of time by accepting their fate with no excuses.
