Wild weekend for MP hopeful Yahya Hassan
The star poet turned would-be politician Yahya Hassan had not one but three encounters with police in Aarhus over the weekend.
It's not every day that a parliamentary candidate gets arrested after a late-night visit to a bar, but then again Yahya Hassan isn't your typical candidate.
The 20-year-old Hassan, who is attempting to make a transition to politics after becoming Denmark's best-selling poet of all time, was arrested by East Jutland Police after a visit to the Aarhus bar Under Masken. The poet told TV2 that he ordered a beer just before closing time and then got in to an argument with personnel when it was taken away.
