The bloke walks out of Court following a 'public nuisance' arrest, mouths off at a police officer whom is giving a press conference, then walks up the road to sexually harass a young lady, only to get chased away by her father and then rugby tackled by the 'old timer' senior detective. He then got nicked for a second 'public nuisance' offence. Classic.

Occasionally, they are caught dancing on the street and sometimes they troll members of the public on social media. Police in the New South Wales country town of Albury had a laugh on April 12 when an iPhone was handed in at the local station, after its owner lost it on a night out. An officer taught the phone's owner, Bella Crooke, a lesson in phone security by posting a selfie of himself on her Facebook with the advice: "You should probably put a password on your phone. When you are ready to pick it up it will be at Albury police station." Image: Facebook / Bella Crooke The authorities followed up with a couple of puns for good measure. "If your worried about the battery going flat, don't. By the time you pick it up it will be fully 'charged'," they wrote. "It is a great 'cell' phone." They included a photo of the phone locked up in a cell. Image: Facebook / Bella Crooke To top off their Sunday morning fun, the offices also sent out texts to her friends, hinting at the whereabouts of her missing phone. Image: Facebook / Bella Crooke Crooke, whose surname is perfect for for this situation, had been at a dress-up party the night before and left her phone behind, according to the Daily Mail. A security guard had handed it into the police station, but Crooke hadn't been able to get there until 1 p.m. "The phone is still here. Ready to be released early for good behaviour. Just waiting on Bella to post bail," a follow-up message read. When Crooke arrived she had no idea about the social media interactions that had been taking place. Albury Police Inspector Anthony Moodie told the Border Mail it is fine to access a phone to track down an owner. "It doesn’t surprise me the creative ways they come up with in getting property back to the owners,” he said. "Phone users should use the locking mechanisms on their phone so if someone should get a hold of it, they can’t gain access to their private lives." http://mashable.com/2015/04/16/police-selfies-lost-phone/?utm_cid=mash-com-fb-main-link
