Lyle Shelton Is Being Investigated By QLD Police After Bragging About His ‘Sneaky Run’ Across Borders

Lyle Shelton Border Tweet

Infamous ex-director of the Australian Christian Lobby and one of the main figureheads leading the “no” campaign in the marriage equality survey, Lyle Shelton, is now being investigated by Queensland police after bragging about sneaking across the border online.

Hopping onto Twitter, Shelton posted four picturesque shots of his run along the coast from Coolangatta (Qld) to the Tweed area (NSW) and then back again. Naturally, this has caused a bit of confusion considering the borders should be very strictly closed right about now.

Sir, if I am being kept from my hot ACT boyfriend, you can stay in Coolangatta thank you.

“Sneaky run across the border and back. Avoided the CCP virus police,” he wrote online.

Probably not the wisest thing to do when you’re breaking the law, but hey, at least he got a pic of a lizard.

Luckily, Queensland Police caught eye of the tweet pretty fast, and were not taking any of this shit whatsoever.

“We are aware of this tweet and making further enquiries,” they wrote.

Currently, the Queensland border is closed to anyone who has visited a Covid hotspot in NSW, which is experiencing a faster infection rate than when the virus went out of control in 2020.

Today, Shelton tried to explain himself online, claiming that there were no checkpoints on his jog across the borders, which is only a touch concerning.

“I was happy to speak with Queensland police today and explain my run along the coast from Coolangatta to the Tweed and back,” he wrote.

“There were no checkpoints for joggers, walkers or lizards. I have not visited a [covid] hotspot. There is a valid debate re borders but I respect the role of our police.”

The results of the investigation are yet to be revealed, but it’s likely that Lyle Shelton will either walk away from this with a fine or just a slap on the wrist.

Folks, if you’re thinking of crossing any of the closed borders in any way, shape or form, please just don’t. I know it’s hard right now, but we need to wait it out together.
