Bartenders fined for serving a high-fiver (8)

TWO female bartenders were fined $550 each for serving a drink to a man who high-fived a friend.

Ivan Pacho was confronted by an undercover police officer and frogmarched out of Campbelltown's Wests Leagues Club after he high-fived a friend in the club's Bamboo Lounge before ordering a blue lagoon cocktail.

The two barmaids were then each fined - one for preparing the drink, the other for serving it. They are now contesting the fines in court.

A staff insider said Mr Pacho, a 26-year-old disability care worker, was in no way intoxicated and was a well-known club regular who was always friendly and well behaved.

Mr Pacho said the police officer repeatedly tried to physically escort him from the premises, even though he said he was willing to leave.

"They told the manager that her grounds for kicking me out was I gave someone a high-five. Come on, Wests Tigers were playing," he said.

Police said they could not comment on the case as it was before the court.

Is it illegal to give someone a high five at a bar in AU?
This is one of the most retarded laws I've ever seen.

Unless "high five" means something sexual or obscene in Australia then this article makes no sense.

That is one retarded police officer. Probably wasn't a Tigers fan and wanted the man thrown out because of it.
