A ROSYTH man arrested after sending offensive messages to his partner also had a knife in his possession in a local bar.

Jamie Ashmore, 20, of Laurel Road, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on May 6 at CJs pool hall, Queensferry Road, Rosyth he sent messages to his partner which were grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing nature.

He also admitted he was in possession of a knife at the pool hall.

The court heard Ashmore was already on community payback orders.

Defence solicitor Ian Beatson said of the messages: “He wasn’t threatening her, he was threatening other individuals.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry called for reports and Ashmore will return to court for sentencing on May 30.
