A Horn motorist who exposed himself to a female cyclist at a red light got a nasty shock himself when she turned out to be a Horn policewoman.

The man, 26, had stopped at a crossing in Horn, Lower Austria, and noticed an attractive cyclist. He seemed to lose all his inhibitions and dropped his trousers - to the horror of the off-duty policewoman who quickly made a note of his number plate.

A short while after he was arrested but claimed that he had undone his trousers because “he had stomach pain”.

The man has already had to appear in the district court in Horn and his hearing has been adjourned indefinitely.
