A British citizen has been heavily fined for defecating at an Italian airport, just after disembarking the plane, according to a local paper, Brindisi Reports.
He received a fine of €3,333 for ‘obscene acts’ a few days after the incident while on holiday in Lecce.
Italian police called the act obscene, especially as it was done in the full glare of close to 50 people.
Border police intervened when the man, who had flown from Manchester to Brindisi in Apulia with budget carrier RyanAir, was apparently unable to wait to use the airport toilet.
The 68-year-old removed his trousers and defecated on the asphalt at Brindisi airport, between the aircraft and the gate to the airport, Italian media reported.
He was unable to give an explanation for the act, and was described as being in a “state of mild agitation”.
Man takes selfie, snake attacks
Meanwhile, an Indian man has been attacked by a python while taking a selfie.
Forest department officials in the Indian Rajasthan state promised strict action after the python attacked the man when a group was trying to click a photo with it.
The incident took place September 23 after forest department officials removed the python from the premises of a school. They were posing for pictures with it after successfully capturing it.
Deputy Conservator of Forests, K.G.Shrivastav, said the incident was unexpected as all officers were highly trained.
“I wanted the snake to be released in my presence. But the officials released it before I could reach the spot. I had no clue that civilians were also present at the spot and something could go wrong as all the officials are highly trained.
”Clicking selfies with the snake and releasing the photos publicly is an offense under the Wildlife Act, and we will issue notice to all involved in this incident,” Shrivastav said.
The victim, Ashok Bishnoi, accepted the incident happened due to carelessness on his part.
“The moment I received the news I reached the location. I did not realize how close I was to the python and it attacked me. This is entirely my fault,” said Bishnoi.
Bishnoi added that the mishap happened in a short span of time in spite of the fact that the rescue officials had a strong grip on the reptile.
