ZDNet reports that a man has been charged with various offences including malicious property damage and resisting arrest after allegedly jumping into Telstra pits around Sydney and causing damage.

The man was reportedly arrested once, but after he was set loose police allege he went on another damage rampage.

He has reportedly been refused bail. Let this be a lesson to all you young-uns: stop touching our telco shit. [ZDNet]
