17-year-old 'granny spinner' arrested
The 'granny spinner' who caused outrage last week has been arrested, but he may escape with just a fine, police have said.
The 17-year-old has been arrested after a video of him spinning a helpless old woman was spread widely on the internet.
Police have said the teen had been arrested near the capital of Bucharest but his terrified victim was too shaken to make a statement against him.
It has been reported that the terrified woman refused a statement and the teen will escape with just a €40 fine.
In the disturbing video - filmed in the village of Jilava in Romania - the unnamed teen attacks the old woman while his friends laugh and egg him on, telling him to pick her up and swing her again.
After it was widely spread, thousands of people took to the internet to voice their disgust at the incident.
The 'granny spinner' has been identified on Facebook under the name Eu Geo Offycyall, who defended his actions.
