FINE IS JUST NOT CRICKET

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

ES­TEEMED cricket com­men­ta­tor Jonathan Agnew has de­cried overzeal­ous au­thor­i­ties for book­ing him for jay­walk­ing just af­ter mid­night yes­ter­day on a de­serted Adelaide street.

The BBC and ABC com­men­ta­tor, who last week de­clared his love for Adelaide as a city and Test venue, was walk­ing to Adelaide Rail­way Sta­tion when four of­fi­cers emerged to in­form him of the of­fence, ask­ing for his name and ad­dress. He is yet to re­ceive the fine.

“Booked for walk­ing across a de­serted street at 0045. Adelaide! I used to love you! How sad,” Agnew de­clared on Twit­ter shortly af­ter­wards.

Adelaide po­lice said they were en­ti­tled to en­force “a range’’ of pedes­trian of­fences.
