Vienna Man Fined for Farting at Police

Police in Vienna have come under fire after they fined a resident for farting in public. Defending the $565 fine, a police spokesman says the culprit acted “provocatively and uncooperatively” when officers found him on a park bench. He got up, looked at the officers, and “let go a massive intestinal wind apparently with full intent,” the spokesman says. “And our colleagues don’t like to be farted at so much.”

Besides, the man has the right to appeal the fine, the spokesman says.
