A ROSYTH man painted a sign on his home with the message: “Islam is Questionable”.

Graham Evans then carried out a dirty protest in a cell at Dunfermline police station by smearing excrement on the walls.

Evans was charged with breach of the peace for putting the slogan up on his house but was found not guilty after a trial.

However, he was jailed for his actions at the police station.

Evans, 40, of Queensferry Road, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He faced a charge that on April 19, at his home, he painted religiously abusive and provocative language on the wall and committed a breach of the peace.

His solicitor, James Moncrieff, argued that there was no case to answer and Sheriff Craig McSherry accepted this.

He previously admitted that on April 19, at Dunfermline police station, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by urinating in a police cell and smeared faeces on the wall.

Sheriff Craig McSherry jailed Evans for four months backdated to April 20 when he was remanded in custody.
