A MAN ended up behind bars after being found in a Dunfermline street with an offensive weapon, a potato peeler.

Scott Walker, 39, of the James Bank Hostel, James Street, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on Saturday in Appin Crescent, a public place, he was in possession of an object that which had a blade or was sharply pointed, namely a potato peeler.

Defence solicitor Selina McKay said her client “suffers from significant learning difficulties which have been lifelong”.

Sheriff Pino di Emidio called for reports and Walker will return to court on May 16 for sentencing.
