Egg on his Face

Egg on his Face

GOTHENBURG
What would you do if someone was throwing eggs at your house? Pin them down and smear their face with the off ending substance? After discovering a group of teenagers "egging" his home during Halloween last year, a 35-year-old Gothenburg resident cornered one of the boys, seized one of the remaining eggs and smeared it in the kid's face. The Swedish authorities were unsympathetic - they recently charged the vigilante with harassment and fined him 11,400 krona (€1,264).
