A thug stripped naked in a police cell before mooning officers and exposing himself in front of a camera "for several hours".

Stephen Dixon removed his clothing while in custody at St Leonards police station in Edinburgh after hurling vile racist abuse at officers.

The 31-year-old covered himself in his own urine while he was in the cell after officers apprehended him for chasing a bloke on a trip with his family, the Daily Record reports.

Dixon appeared at the Edinburgh Sherrif Court via prison video link on Thursday and admitted charges including threatening or abusive behaviour and assault.

Fiscal depute Alan Wickham told how Dixon had jumped out a van in Prestonpans, East Lothian, on May 28 to chase after a man who was with his relatives.

Mr Wickham said the man fled and Dixon shouted after him that he was “a dead man”.

Mr Wickham said Dixon tried to force access to the home of a woman two days later in the county’s Musselburgh, cutting her elbow slightly when the door handle hit her.

Later that day, police traced Dixon in the town and made to arrest him, but the accused began to struggle with officers.

The court heard officers had to use a PAVA spray on Dixon to subdue him and he was restrained.

PAVA spray is a chemical spray that causes severe pain when it comes into contact with a person’s eyes.

Mr Wickham said Dixon was taken to St Leonards and lobbed foul abuse at officers as well as threatening to kill them.

Dixon called one officer a “Polish f****t” and another a “Jewish f****t”, Mr Wickham said, and spat on the leg of an officer.

Once in a cell, the prosecutor said Dixon urinated on an anti-ligature device, covered himself with urine, stripped off, and ran round the small room naked.

Dixon exposed his buttocks in the direction of a security camera, the court heard, then spent hours in the same position.

Defence agent Nigel Beaumont said his client had an “addictive personality” and “can’t get by without alcohol or drugs or both”.

Mr Beaumont said Dixon had a spell in prison in 2017 and had since gone to rehab but relapsed, using alcohol and drugs including heroin.

The solicitor said Dixon was “very ashamed and embarrassed” about his “disgraceful and appalling behaviour” although he was “out of his mind” at the time and could recollect little.

Sheriff Douglas Keir ordered Dixon remain remanded at Edinburgh’s Saughton Prison ahead of sentencing later this month once reports were prepared.
