Drunken man gets stuck in a bin
An article which appeared in the Victoria Police Gazette caught the attention of Neil Mitchell on Wednesday.
The article, which was published on November 7, says:
"Mildura police arrested a Melbourne man in August for being drunk in a public place.
He was placed in the cells to sober up for a few hours then released with a penalty notice.
The man was not happy about being fined and, in disgust, threw his mobile phone which accidentally landed in a rubbish bin outside the station.
He attempted to retrieve it, but became stuck upside-down so called triple zero on his now accessible mobile phone from inside the bin.
The same police he had abused earlier took several minutes to get the man out of the bin, trying not to laugh at his misfortune.
Once free from the bin, the embarrassed, but still angry man stormed off demanding that police never tell anyone about what happened (and of course they never did)."
Neil is one of Australia’s most experienced journalists with success in newspapers, radio and television. He was one of the youngest editors of a daily metropolitan newspaper, The Herald. Enter Neil's highlights page for videos. replays and news.

All matters need to be investigated, there are still rogues out there that believe that the law doesnt apply to them once they put on that uniformJake Thursday 15 March, 2012 - 11:41 AM
