A TEENAGER became irate when a drunken guest urinated in his cupboard and ran after him with a sword.

Darrin Reid chased his overnight guest out into the street brandishing the sword and also a crowbar, striking him with both.

Reid, 19, of Pittsburgh Road, Halbeath, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He previously admitted that on March 15 last year, at Pittsburgh Road, he assaulted a man by repeatedly pursuing him, striking him on the body with a sword, struck him on the head with a crowbar, repeatedly brandished the sword and crowbar, all to his injury.

He also admitted being unlawfully in possession of a sword.

Depute fiscal Claire Lumsden previously told the court that the pair had been drinking together and went back to Reid’s home.

Reid woke up at around 7.30am to find his friend was urinating in a cupboard and had also wet the bed they were sharing.

“Why are you peeing in my room?” asked Reid, who then grabbed a crowbar and an ornamental sword.

He then chased his friend out of the house and was hitting him with the crowbar in the back garden.

The victim, with blood on his face, jumped over a fence and shouted to a neighbour to call the police.

At one point, Reid hit him with the sword, which broke on impact.

The victim ran into the grounds of Lynebank Hospital and flagged down a car. He was taken to another hospital for treatment to cuts to his head and leg.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said he was concerned the author of the social work report did not seem to be aware his client was autistic.

“The complainer urinated in his wardrobe and also on Mr Reid when staying at his home. They have been friends, although there have been ups and downs. It’s not a history of antagonism between them,” added Mr Flett.

“It’s clearly a significant overreaction to what has happened.”

Sheriff Charles MacNair agreed to delay sentencing again, this time for a psychiatric report, until April 17.
