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.”
