The Australian city of Brisbane isn't supposed to see a full moon for another two weeks, but a 22-year-old construction worker reportedly decided to change that in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's visit Monday.
Liam Warriner of Sydney was released on bail Monday afternoon after being arrested for allegedly mooning the queen alongside her motorcade while clenching an Australian flag between his cheeks, British newspaper The Telegraph reported.
"I mooned the queen," Warriner told Australian newspaper The Courier Mail after his release. "Everybody's seen someone's butt, come on. You see it on TV all the time, you see it in movies, it's accepted in PG-rated programming these days, but yet it's an offense to the queen."
Warriner was charged with public nuisance and willful exposure. He's expected to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court Friday.
