Anthony Gorman was fined a total of £400 for offences he admitted despite having no memory of them due to drink.
The 23-year-old, of Malcolmson Street in the city, pleaded guilty to indecent behaviour and assault on police on 31 August.
Belfast Magistrates' Court heard police were first alerted by staff at the M Club, a nightclub on Bradbury Place.
They claimed a man had been exposing himself to people outside.
Gorman was cautioned and told to leave the area, a prosecution lawyer said.
But within half an hour CCTV operators directed officers to a man engaged in the same behaviour on Great Victoria Street.
The defendant was arrested and taken into custody.
District Judge Fiona Bagnall was told that while Gorman was waiting in the police vehicle he assaulted a policeman by kicking him in the chest.
He later apologised for his actions, the court heard.
A defence lawyer said: "He has no recollection of the evening in question. He was very drunk.
"It's no justification but he is sorry for any distress he caused. He's very embarrassed."
Passing sentence, Judge Bagnall gave Gorman credit for pleading guilty early on.
She imposed a £150 fine for the indecent behaviour and £250 for the assault on police.
