Man charged with indecent exposure argues his genitals not big enough to warrant a charge
n Australian man who exposed his genitals in a pub told police he shouldn't be charged because "he only had a small appendage".
Toowoomba man Timothy Scott Clark dropped his pants in view of patrons of the Southern Hotel on the night of September 9. Several people took photographs, Toowoomba Magistrates was told on Tuesday.
But when police arrived to arrest him he told them he didn’t think he would be charged in the circumstances “as he only had a small appendage”, police prosecutor Sergeant Greg Lewis told the court, according to reports.
Regardless, Clark was charged with drunk and disordely behaviour and, perhaps fearing his evidence wouldn't stand up in court, he failed to appear yesterday. He was fined $300 and no conviction was recorded.
