Former Test cricketers Shane Warne, Michael Slater and Kevin Pietersen have been fined $300 for failing to wear seat belts by Tasmanian police who spotted the offense in a video on Warne’s Facebook page.
The four-minute video showed Warne, his former Australia teammate Slater and England’s Pietersen traveling in a van with former Australia captain Mark Taylor and Ian Healy. The group form the cricket commentary team for Australia’s Channel Nine.
After being filmed for a couple of minutes, the men realized their mistake and put on seatbelts. But sharp-eyed visitors to Warne’s page commented on their infringement and alerted police who investigated.
In a statement police said infringements were issued “after police reviewed a video posted on one of the men’s Facebook page.”
