    Lily Allen's Fake Arrest Photo Sparks Australian Federal Police Review

    Sheezus wept.

    British singer Lily Allen sparked a public relations nightmare when she posted this photo to Instagram. She had convinced the Australian Federal Police officers escorting her through Gold Coast Airport to pretend to put her under arrest.

    She soon deleted the photo from her Instagram... but the damage had apparently already been done.

    The Australian Federal Police has told BuzzFeed an internal review incident has begun, with serious concerns that "standard protocols were breached".

    Seemingly unfazed Lily posted her new single artwork on Instagram on Monday morning.
