The incident was said to have taken place on 5 June when an Austrian man was fined €500 for "offending public decency" after passing gas at Vienna police officers, according to the newspaper Osterreich.

An Austrian man has been fined €500 for loudly passing gas "with full intent" in the general direction of some Vienna police officers last week, a judgement the police department is now trying to defend.

The Vienna Police Department in a tweet said, "of course no one is reported for accidentally 'letting one go'". The police said they have fined the man for "offending public decency".

The department added that the unidentified man behaved "provocatively and uncooperatively" during an interaction with police officers.

A police officer stated that the offender arose from a park bench, looked at the officers near him and then "let go a massive intestinal wind apparently with full intent".

"And our colleagues don't like to be farted at so much", the Vienna police added, without detailing how directional the act can effectively be.

The department stated that the man has the ability to appeal the decision.
