A ROSYTH man was arrested after arguing in the street with his former partner about money he claimed she owed him.

Tony Scappaticcio, 23, of Sherbrooke Road, got into trouble on a night out in Dunfermline.

When he appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court, he admitted that on June 30, at Bruce Street, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting in an aggressive manner, aggravated by involving the abuse of his ex-partner.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said the accused and his former partner were out in Dunfermline socialising separately.

An argument started between them in the early hours of the morning over money.

“It seems he thought that she owed him £70. At 4am, they were in Bruce Street outside Harlem nightclub,” added the depute.

“He became aggressive, started shouting and was demanding his money. Police were on patrol and stopped their vehicle. The accused was waving his arms in the air and acting aggressively.

“He was then extremely confrontational with the police. He was told to calm down but refused. He was asked for his details and again refused. He was then arrested.”

Defence solicitor James Moncrieff said: “She owed him money and he was relying on it to get home. She wouldn’t give him the money.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry said he would defer sentenced for good behaviour until February 27.
