Yesterday, cyclingnews put up a (translated?) article on Ivan Stevic being thrown out of the Tour of Qinghai Lake for giving a middle-finger salute when he won. (see article)

But the real story here is why is Stevic still racing? Last I heard, he had a lifetime ban from CONI which he was appealing.

I can't be bothered to find a link, but he cut a deal with CONI. He pled guilty and thay gave him a reduced sentence of only three months, if I remember correctly. He still claims he was framed by his former teammates as they needed a fall guy.
