A TEEN has been arrested for listening to what police deem offensive rap music.
In what could be a legal test case, 19-year-old Nathan Michael Wilkie faces a charge of offensive behaviour after police arrested him when he was listening to music by underground rapper Kid Selzy on his car stereo, the Herald Sun reports.
The teenager is believed to be the first person charged under Australian law with offensive behaviour for listening to music.
“It’s a joke that some kid’s been arrested for doing something that’s not illegal,” Kid Selzy said.
