Things are getting tight for Fat Comedy (23), whose real name is Giuseppe Sumrain. For the slap that the musician gave the comedian Oliver Pocher (44), it could rain up to five years in prison.
This is shown by an insight into the police report that is available to «Bild». It states that the public prosecutor’s office in Dortmund is investigating Fat Comedy for intentional bodily harm. An indictment is very likely.

Security service is said not to have helped Pocher
The musician punched Oliver Pocher in the face on March 26 of this year when he was watching Felix Sturm’s (43) boxing match. Pocher himself accuses the security service in the hall of not having helped him at the time. He drew attention to the attack, but nothing happened.
Police suspected escape risk
Rather, a witness who later testified with the police in Dortmund helped Pocher dial the emergency call with his cell phone. Videos of the attack had already been circulated on social media.
At the time, the police assumed there was an increased risk of escaping the perpetrator, Fat Comedy, because he was not in his apartment and, according to his stepmother, had traveled to Turkey for two weeks. The musician later turned himself in to the Dortmund police through his lawyer.
More about the attack on Oliver Pocher
Burkhard Benecken (46) will defend Fat Comedy in a possible trial. He says: «My client shows understanding and remorse after I have washed his head properly. The act is ugly. I sent him to a psychologist because he told me about the pent-up emotions that ultimately triggered the crime.” (grb)
