AN INVERKEITHING man sprayed an aerosol can at his partner then lit the contents, a court has heard.

Craig Donald, 46, of Whinnyhill Crescent, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on Saturday, at his home, he assaulted his partner by pointing an aerosol can at her, discharged the contents and lit the contents.

Defence solicitor Ian Beatson said his client was a first offender and that his partner was in court to support him.

Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and Donald will be sentenced on November 8.
