And you Americans think YOUR cops are strict ?......
A man who broke wind at an Adelaide shopping centre today wasn't the only one affected — police and nearby customers found themselves coughing too after the vulgar incident.
The 42-year-old man was arrested at 10.15am this morning at Elizabeth Shopping Centre, police said.
Brendan Day, who was eating with his family at the food court, managed to film the man’s arrest on his mobile phone.
The video shows two policemen coughing and pouring water into their eyes as the accused is led out of the shopping centre in handcuffs.
"We were sitting in the food hall near 'Benny's Baked Beans Emporium' and all of a sudden there was this terrible odor," Mr Day told ninemsn.
"There was a man screaming and yelling… we ran over to get a better look and at that stage they had him on the ground," Mr Day said.
"Because it all happened just inside the doorway, the wind was causing the odor to spread.
"Everyone was just coughing and dry-retching, some for at least 20 minutes after."
The man was charged with breaching bail and creating a public nuisance and will face court on Friday.
Mr Day said it took police at least five to 10 minutes to "control" the man, but were quick to escort him from the shopping centre.
