Johan de Nysschen Was Almost Arrested Once in New York
So how much do you really know about Cadillac’s new president? Maybe you know that he was the genius who built Audi into the luxury car all-star it is today. Maybe you know that he was the genius who built Infiniti into the luxury car all-star it is today made a valiant effort with Infiniti. Maybe you even know that he’s originally from South Africa. But you probably didn’t know that Johan de Nysschen was almost arrested back in 2005 in New York City for seemingly sexually harassing a hotel clerk with a “hot ass.”
De Nysschen happily relived the tale through a humorous Facebook post:
“The hotel had given my room away, and the assistant behind the counter was rather unapologetic about it. So after some exchange of dialogue I told her “you don’t have to be so hard-assed about it”, which is an expression sometimes used in South Africa to describe people who are being difficult. With my accent, she misunderstood, concluding I had said she had a hot ass, which of course was an entirely different thing. Following intervention by the security people, at least we clarified the misunderstanding, even though I still had no room. Which by now, having been threatened with arrest and a jail cell, seemed like a really good deal.”
The incident happened when de Nysschen was still working for Audi and was on a business trip in the Big Apple. Let’s hope he has better luck in the city when he goes there representing Cadillac—the world is a much better place when everybody’s asses are soft.
