Brisbane: A Sydney man has been fined 750 Australian dollars (USD 800) for mooning Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, during a royal visit to Australia.
Barman Liam Lloyd Warriner was sentenced today in a Brisbane court on a charge of creating a public nuisance for baring his buttocks to the 85-year-old British monarch and her 90-year-old husband in October. Prosecutors had asked for a 1,000 Aus dollar fine.
Warriner admitted holding an Australian flag clenched between his bare buttocks and running as the royal couple`s motorcade drove past well-wishers. It is not clear whether the royal couple saw Warriner.
Warriner said outside court today that he`d do the same thing to "any self-important, self-propagating elitist."
