A WORKER was injured in an incident in a Rosyth chip shop when a sauce bottle and salt shaker were thrown at him.

Lennon McAlpine has appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing for his part in the incident.

McAlpine, 21, formerly of Balsusney Road, Kirkcaldy, but currently in custody, admitted that, acting with another, on December 16, 2018, at Rosyth Fish Bar in Heath Road, he shouted, swore, sprayed the contents of a sauce bottle on the floor, threw a salt shaker and sauce bottle at a wall, gestured aggressively and threw a plastic display and chair causing damage.

He also admitted assaulting a shop worker by spraying a bottle of sauce at his head and body, threw the contents of a salt shaker at him and threw the bottle and the salt shaker, striking him on the head and body, all to his injury.

Depute fiscal Jill Curry said McAlpine and his companion had gone into the shop at 9.40pm and, following a disturbance, both of them left.

However, within seconds they returned with McAlpine picking up a bottle of sauce and throwing it at workers in the shop.

The court was told that one of the two troublemakers was thought to have been carrying a knife and police were contacted.

The incident had been recorded on the shop’s CCTV system.

Defence solicitor David McLaughlin said: “His behaviour was entirely unacceptable and he fully expects a custodial sentence.”

The court was told McAlpine is currently remanded in custody for another matter.

Sheriff James MacDonald jailed McAlpine for 140 days.
