Report: Austrian lawyer drops his trousers

An Austrian newspaper is reporting that a lawyer dropped his trousers during the questioning of his client by two female investigators, exposing his briefs.

The Tiroler Tageszeitung said Wednesday the incident happened April 20 in a police station in the western hamlet of Mayrhofen. It says that after letting his suit trousers slip to his knees, the scantily-clad attorney, who was not identified, then sat on a desk in his white underwear with his back to the women.

His client, the paper says, was apparently suspected of a sex crime.

Regional criminal affairs chief Walter Pupp told The Associated Press the matter has been reported to the local bar association.
