TL;DR: Bond villains.
- In 1999, at the age of 70, Glock survived a hit job in a Luxembourg parking garage carried out by a mallet-wielding former French legionnaire nicknamed Spartacus. Glock knocked out several of his attacker's teeth before rendering him unconscious. The police linked the attack to an embezzlement scheme by Glock's business associate Charles Ewert, who'd earned the nickname Panama Charlie for helping Glock set up foreign shell companies to evade Austrian and US taxes. Investigators hired by Glock later alleged that Ewert had misappropriated $103 million in corporate funds.
According to a lawsuit filed against Glock by one of those investigators, Glock knowingly participated in the scheme—allegedly paying himself royalties for nonexistent trademarks and laundering money with phony payments, rents, and loans. When the investigators confronted Glock, he convinced state and local officials in Georgia to indict them instead, on charges that they'd overbilled him for legal services. The charges, later dropped, "were fabricated based on falsified evidence, influenced witnesses, and evidence either destroyed or withheld," according to the suit.
