A judge was reduced to laughter yesterday as he inspected the badly translated safety labels on cans of illegal pepper spray. Salesman Chan Tat-wai, 21, pleaded guilty in the District Court to two charges of possessing arms - two stun guns and the two cans of pepper spray - without a licence. 'Interesting,' Judge Richard Day said, holding one of the pepper spray flasks and reading from it. 'Defence to warn. Bleak acrimonious to use merely. Made in Russia.' He burst into laughter as he read the label a second time. Judge Day cut open the plastic seals of exhibit boxes holding the stun guns and unscrewed the top of one of the torch-like devices before passing it down to the defence. The stun guns were powered by batteries when Chan was arrested but they had since been removed, prosecutor Mark Nunns said. Mr Nunns said the stun guns could generate enough voltage to temporarily incapacitate or disable a person. The origins of the devices remained unclear. Chan claimed to have stumbled on them wrapped in newspapers on June 10 when jogging in a park. Defence barrister Gibson Shaw said his client was on his way to show one stun gun and a pepper spray flask to a curious friend when intercepted by police on June 12. The other stun gun and pepper spray were later discovered inside a camera tripod bag at Chan's nearby home. Judge Day adjourned sentencing to January 13.
