A POLICE body-worn camera has captured the dramatic arrest of a tradie after he was approached with a simple litter fine.

Jarryd Evans became involved in a heated confrontation with a council litter inspector and two police officers after he was fined for dropping a cigarette butt outside a nightclub in Fortitude Valley.

Officers arrested Mr Evans for obstructing police but prosecutors have dropped the charge and a court has ordered police pay his legal costs.
