Police Won't Charge Australian Teen or Senator over Egg Spat

Police Won't Charge Australian Teen or Senator over Egg Spat

Tuesday, 09 April 2019 12:39 AM

SYDNEY (AP) — Police say they will not charge an Australian teenager or a senator for a spat in which the boy cracked an egg on the politician's head and the man retaliated.

Victoria state police said in a statement Tuesday that after reviewing footage and interviewing both participants, they had issued an official caution only to 17-year-old Will Connolly. They said they concluded Sen. Fraser Anning had acted in self-defense when he twice struck the teen afterward.

Connolly gained fame as "Egg Boy" for egging Anning in Melbourne last month, after the senator controversially blamed the Christchurch mosque massacre on Muslim immigration.

Anning's colleagues in Australia's Parliament passed a censure motion against him last week, saying his statements blaming the victims were ugly and dangerous.
