Cops taser crap-smeared Oz clubber

Nasty shock for dirty protestor

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

An Oz clubber who decided it was a really bright idea to smear himself with faeces and blood in protest at being ejected from a Gold Coast nightclub earned himself a solid tasering for his trouble, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The unnamed 34-year-old Brisbane man was thrown out of the establishment in Surfers Paradise in the early hours of Sunday morning. Bouncers alerted the cops when he allegedly assaulted a security guard, but by the time the Boys in Blue showed up he'd stripped and launched his dirty protest.

When he refused to co-operate, officers shocked him into submission. He's now due to appear before the beak on 27 August on bodily harm and obstructing police raps. ®
