Man jailed for yawning

A judge in Sri Lanka has jailed a man for a year after he let out a loud yawn in court.

N V P Ajith stretched out and yawned while district judge A K M Patabendige was taking up his case in the courts at Walasmulla.

The judge was so furious that he immediately passed down a sentence of one year in prison, reports The Island newspaper.

Ajith's original case, a sexual assault charge, was adjourned and will go back before the court another day.
