Duff acted in an aggressive manner towards officers, repeatedly shouted at them and directed obscene gestures at them, attempted to urinate on a marked police vehicle and then headbutted a window.
Fiscal depute Lynne MacVicar said the incident happened around 1am, and after Duff had been taken to Kittybrewster police station he calmed down.
Ms MacVicar said: “Despite his aggressive demeanour an acting as libelled, on arrival at Kittybrewster he became apologetic and explained he was trying to get arrested.”
Sheriff Graham Buchanan fined Duff, of Provost Rust Drive, Aberdeen, £395.
