Tasmanian Cops Escort Drunk Man Home And Take A Selfie With Him

Being drunk and disorderly is, of course, a crime and you can face serious consequences with the law if you're off your face drunk. It's also worth saying that being that drunk isn't safe for you either - when you're barely in control of your own body and mind, who knows who could take advantage of you?

But luckily, in Tasmania, if you're found blackout drunk, the police will take you home, tuck you into bed and take a selfie on your phone so that you remember what happened the night before. What sweethearts.

Reece was having a belter of a night out when the police picked him up - but did they clap him in irons, slap in a jail cell and give him a hefty fine?

No. Apparently that's not the way in Australia. Instead the two cops took him home and put him in bed. That's service for you. That's basically royal treatment!

And then, cos the two cops were obviously having a lot of fun with Reece, they took a selfie to remember the moment.

So of course, someone uploaded it to Reddit and everyone was super impressed by Australian coppers.

One user wrote: "Let me get this straight. You black out, cops find you, and you wake up in your own bed and not a jail cell/drunk tank? What fairytale land do you dwell in?"

But it's not the first time cops in Oz have taken drunk people home after a big night out.

A user named YeahThanksTubs shares a similar story about a flatmate who the police took home in Brisbane: "Good on them! A few years ago when I was living in a shared house here in Brissy I had the two constables knocking on the door at 4 am holding my housemate up while he was giving a drunk shit-eating grin and the cop says, 'He's lost his phone and wallet, we found him outside the Gabba and he said he lives here'.

Old mate had a big day at the cricket drinking in the sun, backed it up at the German club which the cops had a bit of a laugh about it told him to drink some water and dumped him on the couch."

The police service for you.
