Bright spark: Police nab fireworks undies streaker

Courtesy of the ABC

A man has been arrested after running down a Mount Isa street wearing only his underpants and with exploding fireworks taped to his head.

Police say the unusual show unfolded when they were called to a street in the CBD at about 11:00pm yesterday.

Sergeant Chris McLoughlin said the fireworks were exploding and the man could have posed a public safety risk.

"He had a bicycle helmet strapped to his head and on that helmet he had some duct tape with several boxes of fireworks," Sergeant McLoughlin said.

"Certainly the gentleman was bursting with obvious flair and he was making a bit of a spectacle of himself, but in the end we must take some sort of action and the gentleman's been taken from the roadway."

The 23-year-old man has been charged with public nuisance and is due to appear in court next month.

Wade - chooks

Mon, 2008-10-27 14:32

They go up to perth after being 'put to sleep'.

Yeah mate - the back cops a hammering - remembering that all those crates have to be lifted onto the pallet base as well (there's 4 columns of 5 crates and a technique to it - first one down - in goes the chooks (6s, 7s, 8s or 10s) - second crate down - in goes the chooks, 3 left on the pallet - 2 empty crates off on the other two - leaves one - in goes the chooks, first of the two empties left you ltook off back on the one filled pallet crate - in goes the chooks - same with the last empty. Repeated for eeach of the 4 colums - then the remaining two filled crates are lifted onto the 3 on the pallet - for each of the column. Whole process repeated for each of the 4 coluns on each pallot - last night - 70 pallets. That's a LOT of lifting.
