A guy in Germany put a sedative in his girlfriend's tea so he'd have a night to bro down in front of the TV.

Ladies, if you've ever put "plays video games" on your Deal Breaker List, history has vindicated you. A 23-year-old man in North Rhine-Westphalia (somewhere in Germany, possibly a magical forest) decided he wanted a night of interacting with other dudes on the Internet, pretending to shoot each other, and his girlfriend's autonomy as a human being was not going to interfere. He fed her a sedative which put her to sleep at around 10 P.M. and kept her unconscious until the following midday. That's when she had to drive to work and during the drive she kept nodding off. Yikes!
Apparently, he couldn't live with the guilt and confessed. She reported him and he now has to pay a fine of 500 euros, which actually seems pretty lenient. The Local reports the judge saying:
“Your girlfriend slept long and deeply, which didn't harm her, but this is certainly a premeditated bodily harm."
To me this sounds like something he DIDN'T premeditate. Her hair was tested and it's the only time she's been under the influence of the drug, so maybe he was like, "Ughhhh, I just have to finish this level and she's gonna want to talk about her feeeeeelings, bleh!" So, he went for it.
Overall, this story is the perfect example of why strong communication is important in healthy relationships. You should be able to say, "Honey, I want to finish this round of Farm Heroes so badly, I'm considering feeding you a tranquilizer," and then she can respond, "You are a garbage person, I'm going to go read a magazine while you pack up your sh*t."
Hmm, I guess both scenarios lead to them breaking up. They're broken up. Duh.
