A DUNFERMLINE man caused a drunken disturbance at the home of his partner after being told to leave.

Declan Cameron, 27, of Mackie Place, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on August 10 at Arthur Street, he shouted, swore and threw a wheelie bin on to the street, causing rubbish to spill out on to the road.

Depute fiscal Sean Maher said the couple had been in a relationship for a number of years.

Cameron had gone to the woman’s home when drunk at around 10.30pm and was asked to leave.

He did so but returned there later on three separate occasions and was refused entry each time.

He was shouting and swearing then picked up a wheelie bin and threw it on to the street.

Police were called to the scene and found Cameron clearly under the influence of alcohol, added the depute.

Defence solicitor Alan Davie said: “He had a disagreement with his partner and initially he did the sensible thing.

"He was intending to go home but missed the bus and went back.”

Sheriff William Gilchrist imposed a restriction of liberty order for four months.

It requires Cameron to remain within his home at times specified by the court.
