Cider drinker uri­nated on bal­cony in full view of woman dog walker

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

A woman out walk­ing her dog in the af­ter­noon was shocked to see a man ex­pos­ing him­self on the bal­cony of his flat.

An­drew An­der­son was ap­par­ently re­liev­ing him­self on the bal­cony hav­ing knocked back six litres of cider.

An­der­son, 48, of Pri­ory Square, Kin­car­dine, ap­peared in the dock at Dun­fermline Sher­iff Court this week in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent.

He ad­mit­ted that on Au­gust 25 at his home he con­ducted him­self in a dis­or­derly man­ner to a woman.

The charge stated that he re­moved his lower cloth­ing and ex­posed his gen­i­tals, caus­ing fear and alarm and com­mit­ted a breach of the peace.

De­pute fis­cal Dev Ka­pa­dia said the 50-year-old woman had been walk­ing her dog at about 3pm when she no­ticed the ac­cused on a bal­cony on the top floor of a block of flats. He was to­p­less and his py­jama bot­toms were pulled down, ex­pos­ing his pri­vate parts.

Mr Ka­pa­dia said the woman shouted up at him, telling him to cover him­self up.

“The ac­cused shrugged his shoul­ders and said, ‘What?’, act­ing as if he wasn’t do­ing any­thing wrong,” he added.

“The com­plainer went home and told her hus­band then phoned the po­lice.”

De­fence solic­i­tor Jenny Simp­son said her client had con­sumed three two-litre bot­tles of cider be­fore the of­fence.

She went on: “He’d had a lot to drink. He’s uri­nated and had done this be­fore on the bal­cony.”

She added: “Since this hap­pened, he’s not been go­ing out on the bal­cony.”

An­der­son will be sen­tenced on Jan­uary 9.

Sher­iff Charles Mac­Nair said: “He seems to have this treated it as a mat­ter of nor­mal­ity.”
