Melbourne Man Told Police He Wasn't Wearing A Face Mask Because Of A Bad Pimple
Victorian police have been handing out thousands of fines to people breaking the rules during lockdown.
There have been a whole host of reasons why people knowingly or unknowingly were doing the wrong thing as the state grapples with a massive second wave of coronavirus infections.
Under the current rules in Victoria, it's mandatory to wear a face mask whenever you're in public or you face a $200 fine. You're allowed to not wear one if you have a medical exemption.
But one bloke in Melbourne has given a pretty weak excuse for not covering up his face while he was in the Port Phillip area.
When he was asked why he didn't have some sort of mask or covering on his face, he told them he had a 'bad pimple' on his chin and it was uncomfortable. He was promptly fined $200 and told to chuck a goddamn face mask on.

The man was one of 204 people who have been fined over the past 24 hours for doing the wrong thing. Can you believe that more than two hundred infringements have been made in one single day?
There were 29 people who were fined for not wearing a mask and 71 caught outside after curfew.
One bloke was caught hanging at a friend's place while he was waiting for a coronavirus test result to come back while seven people were nabbed drinking alcohol in Prahran Square.
Another man was caught on the weekend in a rather awkward scenario. When officers asked him why he was outside the 5km radius, he said his housemate was having loud sex with an 'intimate partner' and he had to get some space.
Loads of us have been there when the housemate has become a little randy and forgotten (or not cared) that people might be able to hear every slap, squeak, moan and groan during a session that can go for hours.
Pre-Covid we've been able to get out for some fresh air. The bloke probably should have gone for a walk around the block rather than a drive outside his neighbourhood.
