A Montreal man who got caught up in the World Cup celebrations Sunday when Germany won the championship says he's shocked by a hefty fine he's been handed by Montreal Police.
Adam Guzzo tells CTV news that he was fined 500 dollars for climbing a lamp post on Bishop street to fly the German flag during the festivities.
" I was like, seriously, I thought they were joking. I thought they were trying to scare me or something." says Guzzo.
Police say it's illegal to climb on public structures and the fines vary according to the borough.
Guzzo plans on contesting the fine in court.
