A judge in a local German court chose an unconventional verdict when two people were given the choice between prison or to buy supporter equipment in the rival's supporter shop.
Two 1860 Munich supporters were accused of having attacked a Bayern Munich supporter. The two had destroyed a jacket, a jersey and a hat, all with Bayern Munich's logo on it.
In court they had the choice between 15 months in prison or to replace what they had destroyed. According to the verdict, it was important that this happened through the rival club's supporter shop.
- I thought about what could be really painful for these two, and to do something like that would really bother them, said Judge Karin Jung.
The two 1860 Munich supporters' lawyer says the clients have apologized and bought new equipment to the Bayern supporter. In addition, they gave him 500 euros.
- They are not the kind of fans who would rather go to jail than go into Bayern Munich's store, said defense lawyer Günter Reislings.
