A man who appeared half-naked in court to face charges relating to car damage has been sentenced to six months in jail for repeatedly flashing his bottom to a judge.

In a bizarre video link appearance at Maroochydore Magistrates Court in Queensland on Wednesday, Aaron Jaye Laidlaw interrupted the judge with questions before presenting his bum.

Magistrate Rod Madsen sentenced Laidlaw to six months behind bars, eligible for parole after two months, for the unsolicited backside exposing, Sunshine Coast Daily reported.

At one stage Laidlaw asked Mr Madsen if he knew what Facebook was and said he should ‘get on it’ before saying the complainant was ‘full of s***’.

He then said ‘I’ll keep interrupting you until you get me out of here’, before standing up, pulling his pants down and turning to present his derriere to the camera. 

The video was cut following the rude gesture but reinstated a short time after so Mr Madsen could charge and sentence him with contempt of court.

Laidlaw pulled both his middle fingers at the camera after being told the charges were punishment for him pulling the same stunt the day before.

He will front court again in two weeks to face charges for three offences related to damaging someone’s car.

The serial flasher said he intended to plead not guilty to each of the three charges.
