Getting taken home by the police because you’ve had that massive a night out isn’t something you’d ordinarily be proud of, but for one dude it’s resulted with the best selfie ever.
A guy from Tasmania, Australia only known by the name of Reece posted a selfie taken by two police officers and himself in bed on Facebook, even though he probably wasn’t aware of it at the time.
“So was just looking through my phone and turns out these good c****s took some banger selfies after they took my drunk ass home! Bloody legends,” he wrote on Facebook. (FYI, the C-word can be used affectionately in Australia.)
The screenshot went viral on Reddit on Monday, where it soon made its way to the Tasmania Police Facebook page.
It’s seriously that good:
In a lesson to avoid future selfies, Senior Sgt Craig Fox said partygoers should “make a plan about how you will get home before you have a drink,” and that he didn’t ordinarily help with getting drunk people home.
It turns out police were contacted by a taxi company to help Reece out.
“When police arrived, they found out his address, took the man home and waited for a friend to arrive to look after him,” Fox said.
“Because he was a bit worse for wear, our officers took the opportunity to record the moment with a selfie in the likely event he could not remember how he got home.”
Now that’s community policing.
