Man free to fart after getting 900 Euro fines

A man has been upheld the right to fart in public after being fined 900 Euros for two offences of passing wind.

Christoph S was slapped with the hefty fines in 2016 and a Berlin court ruled last week that he was free to trump, despite a female officer reporting him for "insulting" her "honour" when he let one rip in front of her.

The Berliner Zeitung reports that a decision was made by a judge within minutes.

Christoph's legal representative Daniel Werner allegedly argued: "A group leader of the police sees the honour of a colleague injured by a fart is one thing.

"But the fact that the prosecutor's office and the court allow the prosecution is a clear case of official failure."
