A BOOZED-UP Aberdeen engineer today admitted trying to hit a policewoman in the face with his privates.
Marius Varinauskas assaulted the officer at his flat in Aberdeen’s Tillydrone as she was taking a statement.
Varinauskas admitted the attack, which took place on November 15 last year, when he appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.
But his not guilty plea to breaking the peace by shouting and swearing was accepted by the Crown.
The court heard the officer was forced to “take a evasive action” to avoid being hit.
Fiscal depute Elaine Lynch said: “Police had been called to the flat to a report of a disturbance.”
She added: “The incident happened just before 1am when police attended in connection with another matter. The police officer was sitting on an adjacent couch taking a statement when the accused stood up, exposing his privates and thereafter taking hold of them and tried to hit her, causing her to take evasive action to avoid being struck in the face.”
The fiscal said the Aberdeen engineer, 38, had also shouted sexual remarks at the policewoman.
Defence agent John Hardie said Varinauskas came from a culture which involved consuming a lot of alcohol.
He added: “He tells me he has never been as drunk as he was that day.
“He has no recollection whatsoever, he apologies profusely and is extremely embarrassed.”
Sheriff Annella Cowan fined Varinauskas, whose address was given in court papers as 33 Hayton Road, Aberdeen, £600 for the offence.
At Aberdeen Sheriff Court, the sheriff had reduced the fine from £750 to reflect his guilty plea.
