Parkinson’s punch

Graham Hollis, 68 years old and a Parkinson’s sufferer, really should have known better than to start a fight with a much younger man.

An inquest has heard how a year ago, Hollis was having an argument outside a pub in Leicestershire, England, when Krunal Patel, 23, asked him to move the taxi Hollis was taking, as it was blocking the road.

“Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to? Mind your own fucking business,” said Hollis, who then tried to punch Patel but missed.

Patel retaliated and Hollis – who had been in the pub for five hours – fell, cracked his head, and died.
