Below the belt, that’s where we hit the “croaking froggies”
The irate French hitchhiker accused of destroying a West Coast road sign out of frustration has now been charged with the theft of a sleeping bag in Auckland.
Cedric Claude Rene Rault-Verpre, 27, had said in an outburst that made international headlines that New Zealand should be renamed “Nazi Zealand.”
In the eyes of the authorities, he had crossed the line and should be made an example of. Accordingly, they seem to have conspired to pin the additional charge of theft on him, as a “Nazi bonus.”
He has since been spoken to by police and is to reappear in court, according to the media.
The hitchhiker, who’s apparently visited 72 other countries, says his anger boiled over after he was racially abused while trying to thumb a lift, according to a “plain-clothed policeman” who gave him a lift.
“It’s originated from a dispute with people on the roadside who made comments about his odd behaviour long before he throw stones at the sign. He wanted a ride. They said no. It escalated. They told him to catch the bus and he was told ‘why don’t you f… off back to where you came from’,” said the “mystery motorist” who picked him up after his first court appearance.

Let’s hope the spiteful authorities will abstain from charging him with triggering the Christchurch earthquake and committing mass murder.
