Aberdeen Sheriff court was privy to a very strange case yesterday. A 28-year old man was charged with, found guilty of, and fined £600 for assaulting a female police officer.
Nothing strange about this so far but this was no ordinary assault because he assaulted the police officer with his penis.
The BBC website states,
“The court heard he had been drinking heavily and could not remember committing the offence at his home in Aberdeen. Police were called to his home by his girlfriend, who had complained about him being drunk last November.
They arrived to find the self-employed engineer sitting on the sofa wearing a pair of underpants.
Fiscal depute Elaine Lynch said: "The accused got to his feet and was standing over the police officer exposing his penis and thrusting it in her face, forcing her to take evasive action to avoid getting struck."
Did she need to sit and simply take evasive action. What is her baton for if not this? Could she not have used her handcuffs to restrain him?
Whatever, given that he was very drunk, this could not have been the hardest case she’s had to “handle”.
