Bloke Fined By Police After Giving PM Turnbull 'The Finger' For Cutting In Line At The Pub
This story has it all.
A man has yelled abuse at PM Malcolm Turnbull in a pub in Brisbane, reportedly giving him 'the finger'.
The punter was angry after the PM and his entourage were served at the bar before he was, cutting in line at the Carindale Hotel.
The PM's security detail got involved and police were called.
The man in his 20s was given an infringement notice for failing to leave a licensed premises.
It's understood that the man was giving Turnbull a spray about taxes before 'flipping the bird' at him.
"There was no altercation but the man was yelling abuse, so he was moved away, taken outside and moved on," a police spokesman said.
He (the man) was fairly intoxicated and fairly apologetic once he realised what he was doing."
