Unhappy ending: Drunk Brit ploughs his car into a German brothel after fighting with security over quality of service
- British men, aged 19 and 26, smashed a Honda Civic into the Cologne brothel
A drunk British tourist ploughed his car into the front of a German brothel after his friend, who was reportedly ‘dissatisfied’ with his experience, had a fight with security when he refused to pay.
Local police said the two men got into an argument with staff at the Eros Center ‘Das Bordell’ in Cologne at around 10:40pm on March 8.
The man, 26, was ‘not entirely satisfied’ with his stay at the brothel, Bild reports, and got into a fight with security which left him with a broken arm and head injuries.
He and his friend, 19, who is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol and drugs, then jumped into a Honda Civic and drove it ‘full speed’ into the glass doors of the building.
A boss at the brothel said that the older man had ‘touched and threatened the woman’ he had been in a room with, ‘and that’s why both were kicked out before he engaged in any sexual act’.

The deputy managing director, who did not want to be named, said that the fight only broke out after the men attacked the brothel.
He explained it had been ‘rough’ because the man ‘had wanted to kill people here’, in a quote roughly translated from German.
Batons are said to have been used by brothel staff and the older man, from London, was hospitalised with his injuries.
The Brits also smashed up a taxi which had been parked outside, t-online.de reports.
The taxi prevented worse damage from being done to the building and anyone inside, the Eros Center boss said.
‘They had to move around there first, that stopped them. Then they even backed out and back in.

‘If someone had been standing behind the glass, they would have been dead.’
The pair attempted to flee after wreaking havoc, with one detained at the scene shortly afterwards.
Patrol officers found the other suspect a short time later nearby, and seized his driver’s license and the car.
He had a blood sample taken from him at the police station.
Police are said to be investigating a total of four suspects, including the two tourists and two brothel workers.
