Throwing objects at police officers is never a good idea, but one Norway man upped the stupidity stakes over the weekend.
The man was arrested for throwing a dildo at a female police officer at around 4.30am on Sunday in the southwestern Norway town of Haugesund. 
 
The unusual incident was dutifully reported by the Haugesund Police social media team. 
 
“A man in his 30s threw a dildo at a female police officer. Charged with harassing a public servant,” a tweet read. 
 
Police spokesman Jan Magne Østebøvik wouldn't comment on what led the man to send a sex toy flying towards the officer, but told news agency NTB that it certainly was out of the ordinary. 
 
“It’s not among the most common things we face,” he said.
