Yes, it’s true. http://www.couriermail.com.au/entertainment/weird/police-nab-cyclist-in-gorilla-suit-in-dalby/story-e6frep26-1226130101814. Police in Dalby (a small town in QLD) have fined an 18 year old kid for riding in a gorilla suit (and doing a wheelie).
Really? Surely not. Since when did riding around in a costume (or doing wheelies) become a traffic infringement? To me, this is a bit of good, healthy, clean fun, where no one got hurt, and a stack of people probably had a great laugh.
Ah, the legislative society in which we live.
