Dawid Stec laughed as police arrived to arrest him outside Club Tropicana in Dundee.

He faces deportation to his native Poland after already being convicted there of a serious assault.
A sheriff told him: "You are wanted by the Polish justice system. I want to get the Scottish system out of the way as quickly as possible."
Fiscal depute Charmaine Gilmartin told Dundee Sheriff Court: "The accused and friends were seen acting strangely outside the club, exaggerating their movements and bumping into people.
"They left to join the queue at Liquid nightclub nearby but were refused entry.
"They walked the short distance back to Liquid and started acting oddly again.
"The accused walked towards the Hilton hotel across the street and lifted his top, showing what appeared to be a gold coloured handgun, which fell to the ground.
"It made a metallic sound when it hit the ground."

"It was later examined and found to be an air soft pistol designed to shoot 6mm ball bearings and with the appearance of an American made Colt pistol."
