In Vienna, Austria, police fined a man 500 euros for loudly breaking wind after officers stopped him earlier this month to check his identity. In reply to social media commentaries, the police justified the fine on Twitter. “Of course, nobody is put on the spot if one slips out by accident,” the police said, according to the AFP. However, in this case, the police said, the young man had appeared “provocative and uncooperative” in general. He then “slightly raised himself from the bench, looked at the officers and patently, in a completely deliberate way, emitted a massive flatulence in their immediate proximity.”
