A DAD going to pick up his child from an after-school club was challenged to fight by a drunk man holding a beer bottle.

The culprit, Kenneth Grindlay, from Dunfermline, has a history of offending against strangers in the street.

Grindlay, 37, of Mackie Place, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on November 18, at Commercial Primary School, Woodmill Road, he repeatedly challenged a man to fight whilst holding a glass bottle, shouted, swore and threw the bottle.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said that at 4.40pm, the man was going to pick up his child from the after-school club.

He saw Grindlay standing with a beer bottle in his hand.

Grindlay then, for no reason, asked the man if he wanted a fight.

The parent then went into the school, told staff what had happened and the police were contacted.

By now, Grindlay was standing outside the building shouting “F***” continuously, still holding the bottle.

When officers arrived, they found Grindlay “rambling about the devil being in him and being in a dark place,” added the depute.

Grindlay has also breached a community payback order imposed for shouting sexually-offensive comments to a mother and daughter, who were complete strangers to him.

Sheriff James MacDonald called for reports and Grindlay will be sentenced on February 23.
