A BUNDABERG man who waved his genitals at several women and a baby in the Hinkler Central car park before leading police on a chase and hitting one in the face had been sniffing deodorant, a court was told.

Ashley Ronald Evorall, 23, was arrested on October 22 this year after police were called to by two women, aged 21 and 17, who said the man had exposed himself to them.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said officers arrived to find Evorall juggling a can of deodorant.

"Police then spoke with another young female who had a young baby in a pram," Sgt Stevens said.

"This person stated she had been walking through the car park and observed the defendant standing in a garden bed, sniffing a bottle and performing pelvic thrusts in her direction.

Sgt Stevens said Evorall unzipped his pants, grabbed his genitals and "started to wave them around".

"The witnesses walked away in disgust and as they left, saw he was performing this manoeuvre to another person outside the fence line," he said.

When police attempted to arrest Evorall, he led them on a lengthy chase both on his bicycle and on foot and put up a struggle, eventually having to be capsicum sprayed which did nothing to subdue him.

Sgt Stevens said police eventually arrested Evorall after a lengthy struggle in which an officer was hit in the face.

"This kid's obviously got problems. It's not normal behaviour to be sniffing these substances," magistrate Zachary Sarra said.

Evorall, who pleaded guilty to assaulting and obstructing police and wilfully exposing himself, had only been released from jail 10 days prior to the offending.

"People have a right to move freely within the community without being confronted by this bizarre behaviour," Mr Sarra said.

The matter was adjourned to January 15 and Evorall, whose parole was cancelled when he was arrested, was remanded in custody.
