With the words “You swine, I’ll hit you!” and the man attacked the mayor with a raised fist. Luckily, Luger was able to flee quickly to the town hall; the doorman had already called the police. The officers from the neighboring police station on Klosterstraße arrested the drunk, who had been convicted of violent crimes several times. Whether he actually wanted to attack the mayor or “just” intimidate him has yet to be clarified.
Nevertheless, Klaus Luger wants to continue to move freely in his city without bodyguards, even if he has already received numerous threats because of Corona. “A queasy feeling remains, I openly admit that,” said the mayor.
After all, he was able to joke again shortly after the incident “You can see what happens when you come to the office too late” – because Klaus Luger is usually at his place of work by 7:15 a.m.
