They did it set an example. Sweden doesnt want steroids apart of their society. Actually the police force in that particular area was reponsible for the arrest, not the governtment of Sweden.
Anyway, they arrested him, questioned him, he gave a urine sample and was told to leave and that he was not welcomed back. Yeah its retarded but they could have actually prosecuted him. When you go to some other country youre expected to follow their laws.
Whats really retarded is that in the article, it was translated by a swedish person on another board, that the po po are acting all proud that they recently learned that bodybuilders use steroids. They think theyre doing a huge service to their country because "Toney is a role model and is representing a standard that can only be achcived through drug use." While that last part is true, the role model shit is some self righteous bull shit.
In that country AAS are treated the same as heroin. In the US a cop can arrest someone for being high on heroin with probable cause. Same thing for AAS in sweden, if you look like you use an illegal drug you can be bruoght in for a urine test.
Toney was released after a little while, nothing happened. He left sweden and told other bodybuilders not to go there.
Cutler had a scheduled trip there with a flight leaving this morning. Theres no word whether he went or not.
I think every bodybuilder, natural or otherwise, should boycott that country. Sweden has every right in the world to enforce its laws but no self respecting bodybuiler should want to support a country that does that to a guy.
They arrested him while he was signing autographs at a supplement store or something. Couldnt even wait til he was at his hotel or something. It was meant to be a spectacle. Fuck Sweden for being douchy
