A Random Hero Called Crime Stoppers On Barnaby Joyce For Not Masking Up At A Petrol Station
Day 2.5 of NSW's lockdown...
Barnaby Joyce was slapped with a $200 fine by NSW Police after someone called Crime Stoppers on him for not wearing a mask at a petrol station. The Deputy Prime Minister was reportedly filling up a car in Armidale, when he was spotted mask-less as he went to pay.
A member of the public called Crime Stoppers on him for not adhering to lockdown restrictions in the state, which necessitates wearing a mask in all indoor non-residential settings until Friday, July 9.

Joyce was apparently inside for ‘less than a minute’ according to Channel 9 News. Police checked CCTV before issuing him the Penalty Infringement Notice, with a statement reading that he breached the Public Health Act.

Naked people being chased by a deer and now we’ve got someone calling Crime Stoppers on the Deputy PM.

If you too spot an elected official contravening the current NSW Health Order for COVID-19, you can contact Crime Stoppers here.
Always a good idea to ring Crime Stoppers if you see Barnaby Joyce regardless of a mask mandate

Every time there's a big snake found or something it gets shared with 'This is peak Australia' but I think running into the Deputy PM at a servo then calling the cops on him for breaking a rule might actually be peak Australia
