Friends Don't Let Friends Harrass Women

i'm an american who recently moved to tallinn, estonia. i was surprised to find that it's rare for men to harass women on the street here. apparently, this does not apply in bars. my friend and i were at the counter ordering our drinks when a man seated at a nearby table reached out and grabbed my friend's ass. she was in shock so i turned around and said, "hey, that's not cool" then addressed his friends (the guy was trashed) "please control your friend." we turn back to the bar and drunk guy makes like he's going for attempt #2 so i turn around and say in a slightly more direct tone, "back off!" as we're paying for our drinks, drunk guy grabs my friend's ass again! i'm not in the mood for negotiations at this point so i turn around and yell, "keep your fucking hands off her, asshole!" and to his friends i say, "control your fucking friend." in response, drunk guy tries to say something and stand but winds up just falling backwards in his chair. we take this as our cue to grab our drinks and go. bastard.
