BUDAPEST — Canadian Ashley Wolfe said Thursday she's proud of her performance in a bloody melee with burly British soldiers and insists she's a victim who shouldn't have been convicted last week on assault charges.
Wolfe, a 24-year-old who stands only five-foot-three and weighs 125 pounds, has been dubbed "Glambo" by British newspapers feasting on the story of a beautiful, petite young Canadian who punched out members of Britain's oldest army regiment while clad in a sexy red dress.
Accounts by Wolfe and the soldiers differed on how the fight started, but reports agree that the woman became upset when she saw male soldiers dancing together, mimicking homosexual behavior by hugging, kissing, and imitating sexual intercourse.
Wolfe's husband, Bill, who was on the base teaching unarmed combat, had part of his nose bitten off after he came to his wife's defense.
Wolfe was tried in absentia after she failed to appear in court. She had asked for the trial to be delayed after she contracted the flu while in Hungary.
A London court, which found her guilty in absentia of common assault, accepted the army’s version: the male soldiers were dancing together pretending to be gay and Wolfe took offence—and in the words of the Sun newspaper, “went on a rampage, knocking over burly soldiers from the elite regiment like skittles.” The Wolfes say the drunken soldiers tried to drag Ashley into the grinding male mass on the dance floor and she resisted, forcefully.
