Police officers conducting boating safety and sobriety checks off South Australia on Friday discovered that they themselves had fallen under scrutiny – by a large and curious great white shark.

Video and photos of the shark trailing the two officers’ inflatable vessel were posted to Facebook and Twitter on Saturday by South Australia Police News (SA Police News).

In both social media descriptions, SA Police News joked that during the encounter, nine miles off Edithburgh, the offers wisely decided not to attempt to include the massive predator in their sobriety checks.

“Noah wasn’t keen on being breath tested & our Water Operations Unit officers were happy to oblige!” the descriptions read.

The officers seemed unfazed by the encounter despite the shark’s size and close proximity to their tiny rubber boat.
