Ferrari's F1 Principal Arrested In Singapore Over Discarding Cigarette Butt

Written By:

Ferrari's Formula 1 Team Principal, Maurizio Arrivabene, was arrested in Singapore for discarding a cigarette butt on the street.

The Italian had to spend six hours in police custody and was fined 1000 Singapore dollars (Rs. 49,000) in Singapore, for littering. The fine might be a mere amount for Ferrari's principal, but Arrivabene was more upset because he had to spend six hours in a police station.

If the story wasn't ironic enough for you, just know that Mr Maurizio Arrivabene used to be an executive for Philip Morris, on of the biggest Tobacco compamies in the world.

We believe that his former employer should have made him aware of such laws, where even something as minute as a cigarette butt, can land a person a fine and maybe even jail time.

The country which was once known for the ban on chewing gum, the city already that has a reputation for its stance against littering, and it is also known for its harsh penalties.
