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