Man fined $650 over bizarre incident and possession of drugs

`A sordid incident involving a carrot, a jar of Vaseline and “other food items” saw the owner of a local food outlet fined $350 in Griffith Local Court last week. [..]

The police statement said the carrot “appeared to have lubricant or some other liquid on it”. The man told police he was not able to get out of his car because he “was not wearing any clothing”, and officers noted he had an erection. An open jar of Vaseline and a number of food items, which police said had been used for “some purpose”, were visible in the front seat. [..]

Police noted the convicted man appeared to be affected by drugs and the court was told his actions could have caused “disgust” in the minds of a reasonable person.’
