A man has been upheld the right to fart in public after being fined 900 Euros for two offences of passing wind.
Christoph S was slapped with the hefty fines in 2016 and a Berlin court ruled last week that he was free to trump, despite a female officer reporting him for ''insulting'' her ''honour'' when he let one rip in front of her.
The Berliner Zeitung reports that a decision was made by a judge within minutes.
Christoph's legal representative Daniel Werner allegedly argued: ''A group leader of the police sees the honour of a colleague injured by a fart is one thing.
''But the fact that the prosecutor's office and the court allow the prosecution is a clear case of official failure.''
