Channel Nine cricket commentators Shane Warne, Keven Pietersen and Michael Slater have all been fined $300 by Tasmanian police after a video of them not wearing seat belts surfaced on social media following last week’s Test in Hobart.
The footage, titled “Ch 9 boys after day 3 in Hobart”, was posted on Warne’s Facebook page and shows the three men not wearing seat belts while passengers in a moving car. Half way through the video the men realise their mistake and put their seat belts on. Check out the offending footage here.
Former Aussie captain Mark Taylor was driving the car and former wicket-keeper Ian Healy was beside him. Both of those had buckled-up. The bad news for Taylor, however, is, as the driver of the vehicle, he could lose multiple points off his licence for having unrestrained passengers.
Although Hobart police didn’t identify the men, a statement from them read: “Tasmania Police has issued infringement notices to three men for not wearing their seat belts: A 47 year old man from Victoria. A 46 year old man from New South Wales. A 36 year old man from the United Kingdom.
“The infringements for failing to wear a seatbelt were issued after police reviewed a video posted on one of the men’s Facebook page.”
