Drunk Australian arrested after eating someone else’s pie

That’s my pie.

The Southland Times reports a drunk Australian man was arrested for disorderly behavior after he went into a Queenstown bakery and ate another customer’s pie.

The man, 33, who refused to give police his details, was taken to the police station, where he vomited on arrival.

Sergeant Mark Gill said considering the amount of tourists that came through Queenstown at this time of the year, the number of drunk-related incidents sounded a bit worse than it was.

Gill said there was always going to be these sorts of problems, but Australians "as a rule" were generally no worse than New Zealanders or anyone else.
