But when a group of six Czech tourists broke out the revealing neon green “swimwear” in Astana, Kazakhstan, local police were none too amused. Not only were they arrested for “minor hooliganism,” but they were each fined $68. 

The O.G. Borat eventually caught wind of the story and offered to pay their dues to the Czech police. Very nice!

He even created a Gmail address: “”

Borats always have each other’s backs.
