A ROSYTH man caused a disturbance, threatened violence then hit his partner with a bottle.

The incident led to 42-year-old Alastair Forrest, of Kings Place, appearing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on October 23, at Hill Street, Inverkeithing, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, making threats of violence, refusing to leave the property when asked to do so and throwing a bottle at his partner, which struck him.

He also failed to turn up for a previous court appearance on February 8.

The court heard Forrest was already on a community payback order.

Sheriff Craig McSherry called for reports and Forrest will be sentenced on July 11.
