A man drugged his girlfriend to make her unconscious for more than 12 hours, so he could be playing on his Xbox without interruption.
The man laced his girlfriend’s tea with a sedative after she returned home from work late one evening.
The woman fell asleep and didn’t wake up until noon on the next day, which enabled her boyfriend to continue playing on his computer with a friend.

After admitting the offense at a court in the German city of Castrop-Rauxel, the 23-year-old man, who has not been identified, was fined €500 ($560) by the judge.
The man told the court that he “only put four or five drops (of the sedative)” into his girlfriend’s tea, according to The Local.
However, the offender’s girlfriend, 24, told the court that she slept solidly until midday on the following day in August last year.
The victim told the judge:
Then I got up and drove to work although I was nodding off again and again.

Upon sentencing the man, the judge told him:
Your girlfriend slept long and deeply, which didn’t harm her, but this is certainly a premeditated bodily harm.
For his part, the man said he had quit his drugs habit and intends to start an apprenticeship. He said in court:
It was stupid, but now I’m on a straight path.
The man and his victim have now separated.
