A man in India certainly did not put his best foot forward when a pungent smell from his socks caused a fight to break out with his fellow bus passengers and resulted in his arrest. Can you imagine the steam that would have been coming out of his shoes, for his socks to smell so bad?
The hapless traveller was on a bus from the Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh to New Delhi when he decided to remove his shoes and socks. But when he was asked to put them away or throw them out because of a pungent smell, the man refused, causing a heated argument between the passengers.
The bus driver was then forced to pull over at a police station in the Una district of Himachal Pradesh.
Una police chief Sanjeev Gandhi said: ‘He was arrested on charges of causing public nuisance and later released on bail.’
He added that the man had threatened other passengers and caused a disturbance at the police station. He later got on another bus and went his way.
