A playboy Croatian priest, who is currently on bail for allegedly running off with close to 1 million euros and a married women after illegally selling church land, has been involved in a punch up in the coastal Croatian town of Biograd, after the husband of a women he was having coffee with in a shopping mall attacked him.
Daily Croatian newspaper Jutarnji list reports that Franciscan priest Sime Nimac (34) was having coffee with a middle-aged women on Sunday, when the women’s 54-year-old husband spotted them together and allegedly began punching and kicking him. Nimac suffered minor injuries in the scuffle.
Police issued a statement saying that the 54-year-old man had been charged.
Nimac hit the headlines around the world after he was arrested in October after it was revealed that he signed a deal with a local firm whilst he was the parish priest of Baska Voda on the Adriatic coast to sell a plot of church land. Nimac then withdrew almost one million euros in cash from the parish account. The church described him as an “insatiable individual” and was known in local circles as “a good-looking womanizer”.
