Dressing down

Singapore, Dec. 18 (Reuters): A Singapore national serviceman who sashayed into a lift early one morning wearing only a pink bikini has been handed a day’s jail and a $7,529 fine by a court in the city-state, a newspaper said today.

Tan Wen Zhong, 21, admitted to five charges, including “outraging the modesty” of the woman who shared the lift with him and “fraudulent possession of women’s underwear”, Singapore’s Straits Times reported.

The paper said a subsequent police search of his apartment turned up 46 pieces of women’s underwear and bikinis as well as four obscene films.

Tan was also accused of grabbing a 23-year-old woman’s buttocks a year ago and of shoplifting a pair of sunglasses two years ago.

Car walk

Athens (Reuters): A pedestrian has been charged with damaging property after walking over a car that was parked illegally on the pavement in Greece’s congested capital. “I could not get past the vehicle, a four-wheel drive, which had been parked right on the pavement so I got angry and just walked over it, slightly denting its hood,” Tasos Pouliasis told state television on Tuesday. Greeks are notoriously unruly drivers.
