German couple in legal soup over ’squeaky bedsprings’ sexBy ANI

LONDON - A German couple have landed in legal trouble after their bed made too much noise while they were having sex.
Police received ten complaints from neighbours of the pair in the city suburb of Lichtenberg on the night in question.
Stefanie Mueller, 24, and partner Lucas Zetsch, 25, faced a fine for the night of passion.
The pair was summoned under anti noise-pollution laws but they refused to pay the 86-pound penalty, reports the Telegraph.
This led to a court hearing in Berlin where Mueller, a hotel worker, said; “We weren’t that loud.”
In reply, the judge said, “Perhaps not you, but your bed. We have witness statements that it was heard banging and squeaking around the neighborhood from 11.30pm until 1.00am the next morning.”
Zetsch later told the court, “It was totally normal sex, nothing exciting” - a remark, which earned him a scornful look from Mueller, who snapped: “Thanks - that was nice.” Then she left the court.
Ultimately, the judge threw the case out as the complainants did not show up for the hearing. (ANI)
