Cops take dim view of mooner
COFFS Harbour Police took a dim view of a Coffs Harbour man who dropped his daks and ‘mooned' Coffs Harbour Hotel staff on the Pacific Highway in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The 22-year-old man had been evicted from the hotel shortly after 1am, due to his quarrelsome demeanour, so apparently decided to take his revenge.
Unfortunately police officers were patrolling the area and took his details and issued a legal process ticket.
