A self-employed electrician must spend more than a penny after going to the toilet on the beach and pavement in Felixstowe.
Gareth Vaughan was given fines and costs totalling £705 after pleading guilty at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court to outraging public decency around 20 metres from a public toilet.
The 28-year-old had been out with two friends and was drunk at the time of the incident which occurred at 9am on May 22.
One witness saw three men in Beach Station Road near the toilets, climbing a lamppost.
They went away and came back again. One of the men leant against a beach hut. He was then seen squatting between two of the huts.
The witness told police after the man had finished he climbed over a wall and took his shorts and boxers off, leaving mess on the pavement.
A second witness also saw what went on.
