An annoyed pedestrian flashed his genitals at a driver because the person wasn’t using his indicators properly. A court heard how David Shepherd, 52, from Dundee, became so irate with with the man, he “lifted the right leg of his shorts and removed his genitals.” Charming.
Mr Shepherd told the court he was annoyed with the driver who drove a “flashy black car.” We’re pretty sure that the driver might call Mr Shepherd a bit ‘flashy’ himself.
Fiscal deputy Muhammed Sadiq told the court: “Two witnesses were travelling in a car and saw the accused standing on a pavement and shouting aggressively.
“While in a queue of traffic the witnesses kept observing him and he continued shouting aggressively towards the vehicles.”
The two witnesses noticed Mr Shepherd waving his genitals at a car behind them. Solicitor Paula Mill, defending, told the court Mr Shepherd was “heavily drunk” at the time. She added: “He claims to suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. Although there is no official diagnosis of this he does suffer from impulsive behaviour linked to his drinking. He is not dependent on alcohol – his problems come from binge drinking.”
Mr Shepherd admitted that he conducted himself in a disorderly manner by shouting, swearing, and repeatedly grabbing his genitals, and then exposing his genitals to the alarm of passers-by. He has been sentenced to 100 hours of unpaid work to be completed within six months.
