    I've asked this in a couple of other threads and never got an answer, so I'll start a threat and hope to get an answer. I know he was 18, but what did he actually do? I've heard reference to the knockout game and him "hurting innocent people". In any interviews where he's mentioned it he only made vague reference to "getting into fights" and "hanging with the wrong crowd" type of comments. Anyone know any specifics?

    He was headbutting a guy over and over after he wrestled him down. He never hit the girlfriend.

    He did more stuff but that was the most serious if i remember right. keep in mind that its not easy to end up in prison in sweden for young guys.

    So the stuff about him playing knockout isn't true I guess? Hard to know the details of a confrontation that escalated. I'm sure if that's what it was he had a lot of fault if he went to prison for that long but still different to me than if he just was randomly punching people for no reason.

    I remember reading somewhere that it was beef with some immigrants. No source though, I'm trying to find it myself.

    If I remember correctly it was with immigrants but that was not the motive. I Think he was 19 and really drunk when this happened. He

    Yeah that's pretty bad if true. Steal something then beat up that person when they object? Wow.

    I believe he had multiple assault cases throughout his teens and not that just one fight mentioned here. My memory sucks though so I could be wrong.

    The people in this thread have given maybe 7 or 8 different answers - none of which backed by sources. Great.
