An out-of-towner has copped an expensive fine after he urinated on the wall of a pub and then flipped the bird at a publican.
The 18-year-old man from south-east Melbourne parked his white Holden Commodore sedan in the car park of Darlington's Elephant Bridge Hotel at 4.30pm on February 7.
The hotel was closed. The owner observed the man exit his vehicle and enter the outdoor dining area where he urinated on a wall.
A female passenger disposed of her rubbish on the ground.
The publican challenged the pair about their behaviour and the man drove away in a westerly direction.
He extended his arm outside the car window and made an offensive gesture towards the witness, who contacted police.
The man was intercepted by Mortlake police at 4.50pm. He was slapped with two fines for behaving in an offensive manner in a public place and driving with any part of a body protruding outside a window.
He challenged the fines but then failed to appear in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday and the matter was heard ex parte. He was fined $750 without conviction.
