A THUG deliberately farted in a police officer’s face during a strip-search and said: “How do you like that?”, a court heard.
Stuart Cook, 28, was at the scene of a car crash in Aberdeen, Scotland, when he was approached by officers.
Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard after cops “smelled cannabis” and decided to arrest him, he became “irate”.
Depute fiscal Alan Townsend said officers searched his vehicle before he was arrested.
Cook “screamed expletives” and “puffed out his chest towards officers”, as he was being driven to Kittybrewster police station.
Once they arrived, officers conducted a strip-search, and Cook was told to bend over.
At a previous hearing, depute fiscal Lucy Simpson described what happened next.
She said he “deliberately farted in the direction of the officer three times, stating, ‘how do you like that?’”
Cook, from Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, previously pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis.
He also pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting and screaming aggressively, displaying aggressive body language, making a lewd remark towards police and “intentionally flatulating” in the direction of police.
Defence solicitor Laura Gracie said her client had been involved in a minor traffic accident.
She said: “He felt police overreacted in the way they dealt with him.

“He became increasingly upset with them and acted in the manner libelled.”
Sheriff Ian Wallace ordered Cook to carry out 75 hours of unpaid work.
