AN ALCOHOLIC was caught with his trousers down by police after a boozing session.
Alex Przybylski was witnessed exposing himself as he staggered outside the former Fartown Rugby Club.
He admitted drunk and disorderly behaviour in a public place when he appeared before Kirklees magistrates.
Linda Fowler, prosecuting, said that the 44-year-old was arrested in front of the Spaines Road premises on the evening of November 1.
She said: “Just after 8pm the defendant was seen by police.
“He was stood by the entrance to the old rugby ground.
“He was not wearing any trousers and his genitals were exposed.
“Officers spoke to him and saw that he was unsteady on his feet and clearly drunk.”
Magistrates were told that Przybylski, of Trinity Street, Huddersfield, was arrested and taken to the police station.
There the Polish man was given the chance to attend an alcohol awareness course in Huddersfield.
He agreed to this but failed to attend and was later arrested again.
Magistrates heard that Przybylski also failed to show for his induction appointment for his community order.
He was given the order, together with a six-month alcohol treatment requirement, by a bench in August following a conviction for assault.
But the probation service said that he was missing for the first five months of his order.
Przybylski said that he went back to Poland to see his sick mother but did not provide evidence to support this.
Zahid Majeed, mitigating, described alcohol as being the “root cause” of his client’s problems.
He said that the illness of Przybylski’s mother, who has cancer, was bearing heavy on his mind at the time of his latest offence.
Mr Majeed said: “On the day things were emotionally overpowering and he resorted to alcohol.
“He feels very much ashamed because he got himself into a state where he no longer had any trousers on.”
Mr Majeed added that his client had not touched alcohol for a month as he understood the effect it was having on his life.
Magistrates revoked Przybylski’s community order and replaced it with a fresh order for 12 months with alcohol treatment.
They told him that the order was a direct alternative to custody.
