Olympian Hooper Arrested, Exposing Himself To Police

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to several outlets in Australia, 2012 Olympian Damien Hooper was charged with several offenses after allegedly exposing himself to police and spitting in the face of an officer. Hooper was arrested just after 2am yesterday outside the Oasis Nightclub in Dalby. Hooper recently signed a management deal with Xcite Fight and announced his intention to go pro. During the London Olympics, Hooper made headlines after he wore a t-shirt bearing the Aboriginal flag, which went against  the protocol of only wearing team uniforms.

"Police detained a 20-year-old Toowoomba resident in relation to other matters when he exposed himself to police and became aggressive and violent," Dalby police sergeant Dave Tierney said to The Daily Telegraph. "Whilst he was being placed in the police van, he spat in the face of an officer. He will appear in the Dalby Magistrate Court on February 19."

"Last night the officer had a blood test. They will do another test in a couple of weeks then another one in six weeks time."

Some of the charges include wilful exposure, obstructing police and serious assault against a police officer.

Whatever he was on, be it alcohol, ecstasy, bathsalts or the combination of these, he needs to stay away from that stuff!
