A man in Brisbane flashes his buttocks at Queen Elizabeth and is arrested.

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA (OCTOBER 24, 2011) (NETWORK SEVEN) - Queen Elizabeth visited Brisbane on Monday (October 24), welcomed by thousands of well-wishers.

One man, Liam Warriner said he was arrested when he put an Australian flag between his butt cheeks and flashed his buttocks to Her Majesty.

"I mooned the Queen. Everybody has seen someone's butt," said Warriner as he came out of the police station.

He was charged with wilful exposure and being a public nuisance and will appear in court on Friday (October 28).

There was no word if the Queen saw the "mooning."

Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh are in Australia for a 10-day visit, taking in Canberra, Brisbane and Melbourne.

They will end their trip by attending the biennial meeting of leaders of 54 Commonwealth nations in the Western Australian capital of Perth on October 28.
