A man in his 40s was beaten up when he began to photograph a drunken driving accident in Lakselv Finnmark. – The driver or passenger may have been provoked by him taking those pictures,  the leader of operations said.

A man in his 20s has been charged with drunken driving after the descent, which occurred at a roundabout around 5 am on Sunday. Two men were in the car, NRK news writes.
– It took some time before police arrived on site. By then a bystander had   started to take pictures of the traffic accident. Then he was knocked down by the driver or the passenger. They may have been angered by the man taking pictures of them and the car – however, we still consider this  a case of blind violence,  Andreas Vesterhus, Leader of Operations in West Finnmark Police, says.
The man in his 40s escaped from the act of violence with only minor injuries, police said.
The 20-year-old has pleaded guilty for drink driving and is now under investigation for violence.
