Australian Man Travels 32 Kilometers For Butter Chicken, Ends Up Getting $1,652 Fine For Breaking Lockdown Rules

A lot of us travel to fulfill cravings that we get, but not everyone does that these days, considering the fact that there are lockdown measures being imposed.

But that was not the case for an Australian man.

According to reports, an Australian man, who was having butter chicken cravings, traveled 32 kilometers to have the perfect butter chicken.

But, things went south for that man.

It is reported that he got a fine of $1,652.

Noel Atkinson, a construction worker, reportedly felt like eating a special kind of butter chicken that he liked, but despite the fact that the time was past 11 pm, he decided to drive from Werribee, a suburb of Melbourne, to the city center.

Atkinson, who is half-Indian, said:

Since it was after 11pm, all restaurants in my area were closed, and I wanted to have butter chicken. I grew up eating Indian food since my mother is from Ambala. I finally found one restaurant that was open but there was no home delivery to my place due to the distance. So I decided to go there.

A couple of meters away from his destination, the man was pulled over by the police.

He was issued with an infringement notice for violating the lockdown measures that were in effect.

Recalling the moment, he said:

I told police I was out to buy food but was ordered to go home. Cops followed me for some time to make sure I was headed back.

The owner of the restaurant said that they will be giving free butter chicken to Atkinson for 1 year once the lockdown restrictions are lifted.
