A man who swapped shoes with a woman in a bar and exposed himself – before later punching her father, has been jailed.
Kevin Duncan, 36, laughed in the dock as fiscal depute Lynzi Souter told Aberdeen Sheriff Court he had thought it would be “funny” to pose for a picture exposing himself.
The incident happed at the Saltoun Arms on Frederick Street, Aberdeen, on September 30.
Ms Souter said Duncan had been talking to a woman in the bar when they “decided at one point they would swap shoes for a laugh and take pictures”.
She said: “While the pictures were being taken the accused made a comment along the lines of ‘wouldn’t it be funny if he got his genitals out’ and he did in fact do that.”
At this point the woman took her shoes back and went to the bathroom to get away from Duncan.
The woman’s father, who was also in the bar, then decided he would “have a word” with Duncan.
Ms Souter said: “An argument ensued and the accused punched the complainer in the face and this caused him to sustain a cut to his lip.”
Police were contacted but as they applied handcuffs Duncan “lunged” at one officer and “attempted to headbutt him”.
As he was being booked in at the station he “partly removed his shoes and kicked them towards” another officer, hitting him in the leg.
Duncan pleaded guilty to public indecency, punching a man to the face, attempting to head-butt one officer and kicking his shoes at another.
Defence agent Tony Burgess said: “It was borne out of tomfoolery on his part, not realising his drunkenness was clouding his thoughts.”
He added his client, who has struggled in the past with a drug problem, did not remember much of the incident due to a combination of drugs and alcohol.
Mr Burgess said: “Drugs have featured in his life in the past and since this incident he has felt himself slowly slipping back into this way of life.”
Sheriff Robert Vaughan sentenced Duncan, whose address was given in court papers as Deansloch Terrace, Aberdeen, to six months imprisonment.
