A WOMAN was dragged across the floor by her partner during a row in Rosyth.

Christopher Smith also damaged walls by punching them.

Smith, 36, of Sherbrooke Road, Rosyth, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on February 27, at his home, he assaulted his partner by seizing her clothing and pulling her to the floor, dragging her across the floor.

He then threw a glass on the floor whereby it smashed, he acted aggressively, shouted, swore, made offensive comments towards his partner, threw a glass jar and punched a wall, damaging it.

Depute fiscal Alastair McDermid said the couple had been consuming alcohol and an argument began with Smith in an “intoxicated state”.

He walked over to a sofa where the woman was sitting and grabbed her by her hooded top with both hands, pulling her onto the floor and dragged her towards the front door.

Later, as the argument continued, the woman said she would phone the police and Smith replied that he would “put her phone in a jar of pickled onions”.

He then started punching a wall, causing two dents and cutting his knuckles.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said his client had no previous convictions and the incident was “extremely out of character”.

He added: “He recognises too much drink had been taken and it was a one-off incident. He has expressed disgust at his own behaviour.”

Sheriff Charles Macnair deferred sentence on Smith for a year for him to be of good behaviour. He will be sentenced on March 23 next year.
