A DUNFERMLINE man has appeared in court for threatening behaviour towards his mum.

Lewis Seath, 32, of Craigmyle Street, previously admitted that on July 20, at Adamson Crescent, he conducted himself in a disorderly manner and did shout, swear and bang the door demanding entry and commit a breach of the peace.

And, on July 15, at Headwell Avenue, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm in that he did shout, swear and utter abusive comments and threw a lighter which hit his mother.

Also, having been granted bail on March 13, 2018, on the condition not to approach his mother or enter Adamson Crescent between March 15 March June, 2018at Adamson Crescent, fail without reasonable excuse to comply with said condition in respect that he entered Adamson Crescent and contacted his mother.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett told the court that social work reports recognised he would benefit from support.

Sheriff Craig Mcsherry placed Seath on a structure deferred sentence and a review was called for January 8.
