A DUNFERMLINE man who assaulted two police officers during a drunken disturbance has been sentenced.

Rafal Dabrowski was said to be ashamed of his behaviour as his dad had been a policeman.

Dabrowski, 41, of Bruce Street, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He previously admitted that on January 16 at Gillie Court, Dunfermline, he assaulted a police officer by striking him on the body.

He also admitted assaulting a second constable by kicking him.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said police had been called to a disturbance.

“There were three males in the house who were all intoxicated. The caller wanted the accused removed from the locus.

“The accused was then confrontational with the police officers.” He pushed one officer and kicked another.

Defence solicitor James Moncrieff said: “He is exceptionally remorseful and genuinely ashamed. His father was a police officer.

“He had consumed too much alcohol and can’t remember much about it.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a community payback order with 12 months’ supervision and a six-month restriction of liberty order.
