Two tourists from China ended up getting arrested by Australian police after getting caught peeing at a park in Sydney.

A witness who posted an account of the incident on social media said the two men were spotted with their zippers open.

When officers approached them, the two men zipped up and attempted to flee.

The officers caught the men, who then attempted to resist arrest, reports Shanghaiist.
