A woman has been arrested after stubbing a cigarette in the face of a TV reporter who was trying to interview her.

The 23-year-old woman had been at Caboolture Magistrates Court, north of Brisbane, to hear murder charges against her friend.

Initally she just blows smoke at 9news reporter Alex Bernhard - however she then appears to stub out the cigarette on her face.

She told Daily Mail Australia that the cigarette “a bit of a red mark…but I don’t want to blow it out of proportion, it’s gone now. It certainly wasn’t something I was expecting when you’re doing your job.”

The woman has been charged with public nuisance.
