A craving for KFC led to an $18,000 fine after Australian authorities busted an illegal birthday party.
It started when two paramedics were grabbing takeout from a local KFC near Melbourne. When some customers rolled up with an "unusually large" order, they tipped off police that a large gathering - illegal during the pandemic - might be going on.
Officers arrived to find a house party with 16 people, many of whom were hiding in the backyard, in the garage, and even under beds.
Each partygoer was fined $1,150 - making a total of $18,000 just for some fried chicken.
