Man jailed after exposing himself to woman
A 35-year-old man who exposed himself in front of a woman at a Castle Douglas pub has been placed on the sex offenders’ register by the sheriff at Dumfries.
Andrew Goldie, described as a prisoner at Barlinnie, but who works on the fishing boats at Kirkcudbright, admitted committing a breach of the peace at Sam’s Bar in King Street, Castle Douglas, in May.
He also pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by raising a glass bottle and challenging another man at the bar to a fight.
In addition Goldie admitted assaulting a police constable at ThreaveTerrace in Castle Douglas, lashing out at him with his legs and spitting on his face.
The court heard that he also behaved in a threatening manner in a police vehicle between Castle Douglas and Dumfries, shouted and swore at cops, kicked out at them, struggled with them and urinated in the vehicle.
Fiscal depute Jennifer McGill told the court that Goldie had been in the pub looking out and when he saw a woman looking in he exposed himself and said:“I want you.”
He then challenged another man to fight.
Solicitor Roger Colledge said Goldie’s problem over the years had been his addiction to valium and he had also suffered a number of health problems including a heart attack.
On this occasion he had decided to have a drink but over indulged and his last memory was of the barman telling him he had had enough.
Sentence was deferred for background reports to October 24 and Goldie was remanded in custody.
