According to UK Guardian, a man in Austria, Vienna, has been fined the sum of €500 (GHC3,248.47) for farting the air in front of police officials.

The incident happened on Friday, June 5, and the fine was based on the fact that the man violated public decency.

Vienna city police said that the man acted “provocatively and uncooperatively” during the encounter he had with the officials before the incident.

They said that the man stood up from a park bench before he “let go a massive intestinal wind apparently with full intent”. The police, however, added that the decision could be appealed.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Garry Webb was compensated with £100,000 (GHC725,571.00) by the police for how he was mistakenly arrested and sent to prison.

He spent nights in the police cell in 2015 when the Scottish police mistook him for the suspect that he was not.

Garry said that the issue was not a case of mistaken identity as the police had all the shreds of evidence that proved he was not the person they were looking for.

He added that they were only trying to cover their mess up. The 60-year-old man said that he was arrested in the presence of his wife against outrageous charges.

Garry said that it was really “insane” when nobody believed he was who he said he was, adding that he said that he went through experiences he should not have faced.

This horrible situation happened despite the fact that the police saw his passport and driver’s license and saw he was markedly different from the person they were looking for.
