Viennese policeman offered to take beer instead of financial penalty

The 28-year-old policeman from Vienna loves to drink beer. His thirst was so huge that he offered to take a beer crate instead of making out a financial penalty because of illegally parking. One time he also left a note on the car of a parking violator with the message that “this takes one beer crate”, instead of leaving a parking ticket.

When the owner of the car wanted to bring the beer crate to the police station, the beer loving policeman was not on duty. A colleague took the beers and reported the incident to his superior. Yesterday the policeman was sentenced to a financial penalty of 7.200 Euro. It’s possible that his “beer bribery” has also serious consequences on his further professional path. A disciplinary procedure is on its way.
