Biz honcho fined for ice cream truck attack
www.thelocal.se ^ | 01-24-2014 | TT/The Local/og

Businessman Percy Nilsson, 71, was perhaps best known for his ownership of his local Malmö Redhawks ice hockey team, but has lately been making headlines after a power-drill attack on an ice cream truck. On Friday, he was ordered to pay a fine of 100,000 kronor ($15,500) by the Malmö District Court. He was also sentenced to pay for the loss of income that the ice-cream truck owner faced after the vandalism.

"It was a really tough sentencing and it's sad that it ended this way," Nilsson told the TT news agency. He lamented that he had already paid for the tyres and confessed to the crime."

The attack took place in October in Vellinge, southern Sweden, when Nilsson admitted to using a power drill to puncture the tyres of the vehicle. He said at the time that the move was intended to spark debate about the "outdated" practice of having trucks blaring their signature melody as they were driven through residential areas.

Nilsson's lawyer had argued that the jingle made 71-year-old suffer mentally.

~~~100,000 kronor~~~ is about as much someone suffering from microcephalia earns in Sweden on a monthly basis.

Damn ice cream trucks!

I can sympathize. I would have tried to take out his speakers first though.

That was done the opening of a "Bones" epi. A clown head had the speakers...

The FBI guy, Booth, shot the clown head.

I once knew this girl working for a major ice cream plant.

Totally admired her.

I fully support and respect ladies who can make ice cream.

If they’re able to make ice cream, just imagine what they could do in other areas of advanced craftsmanship.

Weapon of choice for the handyman.. And offended resident or is it offended?

Cordless drill no doubt altho, a good handyman will have at least a couple hundred feet of cord handy..

That would probably get you a worse punishment than drilling someone's tires.

The ice cream trucks that remain around here have been playing a Xylophone version of “Pop Goes The Weasel!” over and over and over. It’s hard to stop hearing that tune in my head, long after the truck has left the neighborhood.

There are hispanic ice cream trucks blaring a jingle of Dixie that serve black neighborhoods here.

I’m not sure I’d consider ice cream making to be advanced craftsmanship.

So much for the old Eddie Murphy routine:

“I got some ice cream...I got some ice cream.....”

“You didn’t get no ice cream.....no you didn’t get none....’cause you on the welfare...you can’t afford it....and your dad’s an alcoholic. Wanna lick.....PSYCH!”

Around here it seems to always be Christmas music in the summer or Music Box Dancer.

“I’m not sure I’d consider ice cream making to be advanced craftsmanship.”

- You're probably right, but over here in Scandinavia, we take ice cream very seriously.

There's a war out there.

Our roads are filled with maniac drivers doing their utmost to deliver ice cream to the insatiable market.

This is what Swedish roads look like today:

Another clip, featuring how a Swedish tank nearly collides with a truck transporting ice cream and other consumables:

I didn’t for a long, long time. The early ones are not too good. Just a couple here and there.

By about 95 or later it was getting better.

I mostly got into it on reruns.

I doubt that he'd be convicted by a jury of his peers.
