A man in Austria has been fined for farting. The man was sitting on a bench in Vienna. The police tweeted about what happened after police officers went to the man. They wrote: "He rose slightly from the park bench, looked at the officers, and apparently intentionally released a massive fart in the immediate [area] of the officers." The police gave the man a fine for anti-social behaviour by farting loudly in front of them.

The man got a fine of about $560. If he does not pay it, he could go to prison. The police said it was right to give the fine because the man was doing other annoying things. He was misbehaving and upsetting other people. They said the man only had one thing on his mind when he stood up in front of police officers. That thing was to fart at them. The officers said he released a "massive" fart, and he meant it.
