Senior Smacks Biker With Stick

Even if you’re too old for knives, you’ve still got a chance on Knifecrime Island: “Keith Degroot was in a pub when a burly 6′ 3″ Hell’s Angel biker approached him, knocked his beer over and called him a ‘fucking Jew.’ Degroot felt intimidated and reacted with his walking stick, smashing the biker in the head and causing serious injuries. Now he is in jail.” Also: “The clash took place after the two men had spent the day drinking at the Duck And Drake in Leeds city centre.” The 66-year-old Degroot got 18 months. [Via]
