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

Andrew Anderson, 48, of Priory Square, was apparently relieving himself having knocked back six litres of cider.

At Dunfermline Sheriff Court, he admitted that on August 25 at his home he conducted himself in a disorderly manner to a woman in 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 complainer is a 50-year-old woman who was walking her dog at about 3pm.

“As she walked past a block of flats she saw the accused on a balcony on the top floor. He was topless and his pyjama bottoms were pulled down, exposing his penis and testicles.

“The woman shouted up at him saying, ‘Dirty b******’ and ‘Put your d*** away’.

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

“A neighbour heard the disturbance and saw the accused on the balcony. He was topless and walking back into his flat.

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

She later went with officers to show them the balcony where the incident occurred.

Anderson told officers he had heard a woman say: “He’s got his c*** out”. He added, “But I didnae.”

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

She said her client claimed that he sometimes had to urinate “very suddenly” but admitted there was no medical evidence of any such condition.

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

Sheriff Charles MacNair said: “He seems to have treated this as a matter of normality. He says everybody does it, which is news to me.”

He called for reports and Anderson will be sentenced on January 9.

Ms Simpson had good news for his downstairs neighbours, telling the court: “Since this happened, he’s not been going out on the balcony.”
