Mr Pryczek's police union defence lawyer, Troy Schmidt, today said the 30-year-old police officer used bodybuilding to deal with the stresses of being a police officer.

But he made a "stupid decision" and started experimenting with steroids after becoming immersed in the gym culture.

Magistrate Cameron Press fined Pryczek $800.

It is not known at this stage what the outcome of Rumble's court appearance was.
