With a towel around his waist and a smirk on his face, the beast from the east taunted police. A can of police-issued capsicum spray was his trophy, held aloft in a series of photos on Facebook after a run-in with the law that night. That social media taunt from Brendon Jaymes Kviesitis landed the Albany man in hot water for illegally possessing part of a WA Police uniform. The 32-year-old posted the photos of himself on Facebook on June 1 — the same date an officer dropped the capsicum spray outside of his Lockyer home, the Albany Magistrate’s Court was told on Thursday. “I’m from the EAST a can of Mase can’t tame the BEAST one officer lost his balls dropping this can,” Kviesitis posted to Facebook. Police had been at Kviesitis’ home about 6.15pm to impound his car, according to police prosecutor Sgt Alan Dean. While they sat in their parked police vehicle filling out paperwork, Kviesitis told one officer, through an open window with a raised clenched fist, to “move along c***”. “You’ll end up on your a**,” Kviesitis told the officer, according to Sgt Dean. Kviesitis was then hit with capsicum spray. After officers got out of their car, Kviesitis — surrounded by friends — started “posturing for a fight” and said “let’s go”, the court was told. The officer’s partner then deployed their capsicum spray, hitting Kviesitis again. Police were forced to leave the scene after one of them was hit with “secondary” spray. Officers executed a search warrant at Kviesitis’ home days later, but were unable to recover the spray. On June 5, footage of a police raid was posted to the same Facebook page. The videos show six officers entering a home as a man appears to remove a bong from a table. “Damn disturbing my morning sesh run and stash the goods well got to try hahaha,” the Facebook post accompanying the videos said. In court last Thursday, Kviesitis pleaded guilty to obstructing officers and possessing police uniform without authorisation. His lawyer, Graeme Payne, said his client was annoyed police had mistakenly impounded his car, submitting to the court that it was later returned to Kviesitis. Magistrate Raelene Johnston told the father of two he was “too old for all of that”, before placing him on an eight-month community-based order. Kviesitis will have to serve 50 hours of community work as part of the order.
