Victoria Police have revealed a man was fined in Horsham during the five-day "circuit-breaker" lockdown for being outside the mandatory five-kilometre radius.
Police said the man refused to comply with directions and stated he was an essential worker because he makes socks and underwear.
The fine given to him was one of 62 which were warranted while stage four restrictions were in place between Saturday February 13, and Wednesday February 17.
A Victoria Police spokesperson said these offenders were outliers during this period.
"Victoria Police was really pleased with community behaviour during the circuit-breaker restrictions," they said.
"We thank all Victorians for their cooperation during the lockdown.
"We know it was a difficult time for many people, but it was great to see everyone doing their part to keep the community safe."
Other offences police warranted fines for included people refusing to wear masks, and two men who attended a suspected unlicensed brothel for a massage.
The Victoria Police Spokesperson said police showed leniency when reasonable.
"Police worked with the community to ensure they understood the directions and fines were only issued for deliberant, blatant and obvious offences," they said.
"Overwhelmingly people complied with the directions and there was no common theme in terms of breaches."
