Protester Sprays Prince

A 58-year-old man muttering that he wanted to "remove the stink of royalty" was wrestled to the ground in New Zealand on Monday after charging at Britain's Prince Charles spraying a can of air freshener.


Castislav Bracanov, previously jailed for minor attacks on royalty visiting New Zealand, rushed at the heir to the British throne as he walked among well-wishers on the Auckland waterfront.


Prince Charles hardly seemed to notice the attack, foiled when police officers leapt on Bracanov, a Yugoslav settled in New Zealand, and arrested him.
