A MAN caught by police with his penis submerged in a pasta sauce jar was still pleasuring himself while resisting arrest, a court has been told.
Police drew their weapons after New South Wales man Keith Roy Weatherley, 46, led them on a brief, slow-speed car chase, the Newcastle Herald reports.
Weatherley attracted police attention while he was parked in a no-stopping zone near Nobby's Beach on October 26, Newcastle Local Court was told yesterday. .
Police thought he might have a weapon because they saw him doing something with his hands in his lap, the Herald said.
Instead, they found him partially clothed with his genitals in a jar, a police statement said.
That's when the pursuit began, the court was told.
When Weatherley was stopped, he refused to leave his car and four officers used batons and capsicum spray to get him out.
They found a 750mm jar around his penis and said Weatherley attempted to continue "pleasuring himself in between bouts of wrestling".
A search of his car uncovered pornography, a homemade sex aid, women's stockings and a Jack Russell terrier.
Weatherley pleaded guilty to offensive behaviour, resisting police and disobeying a police direction.
He was convicted and fined $600.
1. Pasta sauce?
2. In public?
If I was a police officer who was involved in this I wouldn't even
be angry, i'd be impressed!
"Oh no no officer, it's not what it looks like. I'm just ahhh preparing dinner."
