Australian Horse Racing Fan Inexplicably Shoves Cop Into Flower Bed, Explicably Gets Arrested (Video)
An Australian horse racing fan was arrested on Tuesday after she ran up to a police officer and shoved him into a flower bed.
Why did she do it? And why the hell did she look so shocked when two other police officers immediately apprehended her? That we cannot say.
What we can say is that it happened at Melbourne’s Flemmington Racecourse during the Melbourne Cup, Australia’s most prestigious horse race. And we can also say that the atmosphere at the Melbourne Cup is a cross between the Kentucky Derby and a frat party—which is to say people dress up in their nicest clothes and get absolutely shitfaced.
I’ve watched the video of the incident involving the hot racing fan and the cop about 30 times now, and it’s just so bizarre. If it were not reported by 7 News Melbourne, I would probably assume it’s some kind of hoax.
Here’s the video so you can see for yourself:

Clearly Australians do not mess around.
