A MAN who shoved a fire extinguisher hose up a pal's bottom and set it off was yesterday told to pay his victim £4500 compensation.
Brian Kennedy was also ordered to do the maximum 300 hours' community service following the prank that went horribly wrong.
Victim Kristofor Graham, 23, needed a colostomy after his rectum and large intestine were torn.
Last night, Kennedy, 34, said: 'I wish I could turn back the clock. I've apologised to Kristofor a couple of times but I know that's not enough.'
Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard that Kristofor and Kennedy were staying in a B&B in the city while working as shopfitters last September
The men, from East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, had been out drinking with colleagues.
They soaked each other with the extinguisher when they got back to their digs, John Richardson, prosecuting, told the court earlier.
He added: 'The complainer then lay face down on the bed with a pair of boxer shorts on. As he was asleep, he felt a hand on his shoulder.
'He then felt an object being placed in his back passage and he became aware of a loud hissing sound and the fire extinguisher being discharged.
'He was in immediate pain but didn't realise the extent of his pain until he got up to go to work and realised he was bleeding from his rectum.'
Kristofor went home for treatment because he didn't want his mum to be forced to travel north to see him in hospital.
He spent two weeks in hospital but was readmitted with abcesses and needed a colostomy.
Kristofor is still getting treatment and his injuries may never heal.
Kennedy admitted assault to severe injury. Gerrard McGuire, defending, said: 'Mr Kennedy was shattered by the events of that night and has found it very difficult to get over this matter.
'He has spoken to Mr Graham on several occasions and apologised. It was horseplay that went badly wrong.'
Sheriff Kiernan McLernan said he recognised that there was no malicious intent.
He said: 'Had there been any inference of intent then you would be serving a long period in custody
Kidde's do silly things.
How are we so sure it wasn't a prank?
What is a shopfitter?
"... is the kind of man I lie awake nights dreaming about, gosh darn it -- !" :)
Two queers in action I guess.
"I'm sorry, but he looked so hot, Your Honour..."
With pals like this.....
It's all fun and games until somebody's bottom gets blown out.
Something similar happened to a guy at work. He was blowing dust off himself with an air hose and put it down his pants. He turned the nozzle toward himself and blew up his abdomen with air. He wasn't seriously hurt but had to go to the hospital to get the air out.
Being gay is just an alternate lifestyle. They're not perverted at all. /s
Cabinetmaker, jointer, trim carpenter...
(Blank stare follows...)
He got hosed.
This happened in the 70s in one of the mills back home.
A guy goosed a coworker with an airhose thinking it would be funny.
The guy died from internal injuries
why do Brits say "in hospital" "in the hospital"?
(someone will get it, someone will post the picture).
Good thing Sandra Day O'Conner is retiring, she'd find a Constitutional right to do this.
