Overkill? The dramatic arrest of a man facing a litter fine
A POLICE body-worn camera has captured the dramatic arrest of a tradie after he was approached with a simple litter fine.
Jarryd Evans became involved in a heated confrontation with a council litter inspector and two police officers after he was fined for dropping a cigarette butt outside a nightclub in Fortitude Valley.
Officers arrested Mr Evans for obstructing police but prosecutors have dropped the charge and a court has ordered police pay his legal costs.
The footage obtained by News Corp Australia shows that after being repeatedly abused by Mr Evans, the inspector exchanged insults with the plumber.
