Controversial property developer Salim Mehajer has been arrested while on the party island of Ibiza after having an argument with a taxi driver over food spilled inside the car.
A Current Affair reports the arrest took place on Friday evening when Mehajer and two of his friends got into a taxi and spilled takeaway food inside the car.
The driver became annoyed and a heated argument erupted that was only stopped when police arrived and intervened.
The subsequent detainment of Mehajer was caught on video.
The footage shows Mr Mehajer and his friends being frisked by Spanish police and put in the back of a police car.
According to A Current Affair, the 30-year-old allegedly attempted to kick the driver before he was ejected from the taxi with his friends.
Last night Mehajer arrived back in Sydney and said he was never put in jail during the arrest.
Mehajer left Sydney in September posting on his Instagram page that he was leaving the country with an image of a ship on Sydney Harbour with the caption, “Goodbye Australia”.
“Will be taking off to pursue my dream challenges,” he wrote, adding: “I’ll be back.”
Mehajer made headlines earlier this year when footage of hurling abuse at his estranged wife Aysha Learmonth was made public.
2. IVF clinics making false and misleading claims about success rates.
For many heartbroken parents IVF is a lifeline but their hopes are being raised unfairly when clinics make false claims about their success rates.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has described the practice as a “race to the bottom” that targets vulnerable people.
Several major IVF clinics and some smaller ones have been asked to change claims on their websites about their success rates following an investigation.
Commissioner Sarah Court said the ACCC reviewed the websites of Australia’s 34 IVF providers they found that some IVF clinics had been advertising success rates of up to 90 per cent within two cycles for women in their 30s. The data excluded clients who had unsuccessful cycles or who had moved clinics after failed attempts, Fairfax Media reports.
She told Fairfax Media many people paying for IVF were “vulnerable and desperate” to have a baby and this was “particularly egregious” behaviour.
Other IVF clinics were using data on the creation of embryos in laboratories rather than live birth rates.
