Nicklas Bendtner: Eroticism has a face
While he wasn’t involved in Arsenal’s squad for their Champions League excursion to Munich on Tuesday night in any capacity, it seems that Nicklas Bendtner still enjoyed a lively old evening having returned home to Denmark.
According to Danish tabloid BT, Bendtner went out for a drink with a few friends and, once again, ended the night rat-arsed, running “amok” (to use a direct quote) and scuffling with taxi drivers in the middle of Copenhagen.
Bendtner reportedly watched Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Bayern with three friends, one of whom had a bicycle with them, at the Norrebro Brewery in Ryesgade, Copenhagen before making his way outside at the end of the night in order to find himself a taxi – which he duly molested with his bare abdomen.
The taxi driver picks up the yarn in BT thus:
“I got out of the car to put the bike stand on the back of the cab, and Bendtner and two of the others climbed into the back seat. When I sat back down I saw that the taxi radio had been kicked loose and was dangling down.
“They’d also taken some of my personal belongings that had been lying between the seats and, when I asked to have them back, Bendtner completely freaked out.
“He said that, if he was not so famous, he would have smacked me, and he called me a ‘little fat pig’. I asked him to leave the car – I had to ask them three times, and said I’d have to call the police if they didn’t.
“He stood at the back of the car and rubbed up against the side window after unbuttoning his pants while he whipped the cab with his belt and shouted he wanted to ‘f**k me’.
I’ve had drunks and alcoholics in my cab in Copenhagen over the last 25 years, but I’ve never experienced anything like this.”
“I have had drunk passengers in my car for 25 years and I have never seen anything like it.”
“He stood at the back of the car and rubbed up against the side window after unbuttoning his pants while he whipped the cab with his belt and shouted he wanted to ‘f**k me’.”
For the record, spokespeople for both Arsenal and Bendtner himself have since declined to comment on the incident.
