CANBERRA, Oct 24 (Reuters) An Australian barmaid has been fined for crushing beer cans between her bare breasts while an off-duty colleague has been fined for hanging spoons from her friend's nipples, police said today.
Police in Western Australia said the 31-year old barmaid pleaded guilty in the local magistrate's court to twice exposing her breasts to patrons at the Premier Hotel in Pinjarra, south of the state capital, Perth.
The woman ''is alleged to have also crushed beer cans between her breasts during one of the offences'', in breach of hotel licensing laws, police from the Peel district of Western Australia said in a statement.
The barmaid and the hotel manager were both fined 1000 Australian dollars while an off-duty barmaid was fined 500 Australian dollars for helping to hang spoons from the woman's nipples, police said.
''It sends a clear message to all licensees in Peel that we will not tolerate this type of behaviour in our licensed premises,'' local police superintendent David Parkinson said.
