News server reported on 24 April that police in Chomutov, Czech Republic have proposed indicting bodybuilder Filip Grznár for felony approval of crime and violence committed against a group or its individual members. Last June the bodybuilder disseminated a video online in which he threatened local Roma in Chomutov with murder, expressed aggressive, vulgar opinions about the shooting death of a Romani man there, and expressed his backing for the man who murdered him.

Police have been investigating the video since then and police spokesperson Marie Pivková said their investigation is now complete. "The file will be completed on 24 April and sent to the State Prosecutor in Chomutov with a motion to indict the suspect for felony approval of crime and violence committed against a group or its individual members," she told

Grznár made the video in reaction to the incident on 27 May 2017 that transpired at 3 AM at a housing estate in Chomutov. A local resident fired a pistol 13 times at a young Romani driving a van and killed him.

The shooter has been sentenced to 12.5 years in prison and insists he was doing his best to prevent terrorism because the young man, in his opinion, was driving his van into a group of people. From the police investigation and the trial, however, facts emerged to the contrary and the prosecutor rejected the idea that the shooter had acted in a situation of extreme danger or necessary self-defense.

The bodybuilder said the following in his video: "[The shooter] did a good deed. The problem is that the fucking Czech justice system will send him behind bars, it's horrible. The gypsies want to cause unrest and are threatening his family. If they do that, then I will go to Chomutov for those gypsies and murder them."

Grznár is famous for his indiscriminate vocabulary, his ungrammatical writing, his use of methamphetamine, and his love of the neo-Nazi clothing brand Thor Steiner. In one of his videos he invites the far right Czech MP Tomio Okamura to come work out with him.
