The bizarre incident resulted in 20-year-old Finlay Dickson, of Johnston Park, appearing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on January 20 at Arthur Street, Cowdenbeath, he removed his clothing, exposed his naked penis and spat in the direction of police officers.

Depute fiscal Amy Robertson said that at around 3pm a woman drove her car into Arthur Street and saw Dickson walking along the street with no top on and no shoes.

“She thought it was strange considering it was a frosty, cold day. He jumped a fence and went out of sight but she stayed in her car watching to see if he came back,” added the depute.

“He re-appeared, saw her sitting in her car and started jogging towards her. He then pulled down the front of his trousers exposing his penis.”

Dickson pulled his trousers back up and ran past the car in the direction of Mossmorran.

Police were contacted and caught Dickson after a foot chase, putting him in handcuffs.

He then spat at the officers. He was taken to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy as it was thought he was under the influence of substances. He was discharged after three hours there.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said: “He’s not been in trouble before and his mother is in court with him. He had been with friends, drinking alcohol and was clearly intoxicated.”

Sheriff Charles Lugton deferred sentence for good behaviour until January 24.

The Crown had accepted there was not a significant sexual element in the offence.
