A French backpacker has been arrested in Western Australia after her boyfriend was spotted riding on the bonnet of their car dressed in a dinosaur 'onesie', wearing a snorkel and smoking a cigarette.
The bizarre sight confronted police in the northern coastal town of Broome at around 7.20am on Sunday, as they drove towards the Cable Beach.
Police spotted the white Ford Falcon stationwagon as it travelled towards them at about 60km/h with the man lying on the bonnet of the car facing the female driver. Police turned around to follow the car and when they pulled the vehicle over, the man had not moved and was still lying on the bonnet.
The 23-year-old female driver was later charged with reckless driving and driving with a blood alcohol level in excess 0.05 per cent. The vehicle, which the couple were believed to be living in, was also seized under hoon legislation. The woman will appear in court at a later date. A WA police spokeswoman said there seemed to be no reason for the man to be on the bonnet, 'other than stupidity'.
