A ROSYTH man who committed a drink-drive offence was then involved in an incident of street disorder a few months later.

John Morrison has been warned he's facing a jail sentence if he continues to offend.

Morrison, 30, of Elder Place, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

He admitted that on October 29 last year, in Townhill Road, Dunfermline, he drove after consuming excess alcohol. His reading was 73 milligrammes in 100 millilitres of blood, the legal limit being 50 milligrammes.

He also admitted that on April 25, at High Street, Inverkeithing, he conducted himself in a disorderly manner by shouting, swearing and making threats of violence.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said that the drink-driving incident occurred after his client had been at a party and left following a row with his partner.

In the recent offence: “He went to a pub, got into an argument and went out into the High Street when he was drunk and agitated.

“He seems to turn to drink in times of stress,” added the solicitor.

Sheriff Gillian Wade deferred sentence on the street disturbance until October 10.

For the drink-drive offence, a community payback order was imposed with 135 hours of unpaid work and a three-year driving ban.

The sheriff warned Morrison he was “standing at the door of a custodial sentence” if he did not change his ways.
