WHEN a Rosyth woman binned her new boyfriend, he could not accept it and his behaviour has now led to a fine.

Kevin Kane’s bragging messages, generally about how great he was, backfired and the relationship was brought to a sudden end.

Kane, 33, of Seabegs Crescent, Bonnybridge, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that between November 13 and December 8 last year at Backmarch Road, Rosyth, he engaged in a course of conduct against his former partner, attempted to contact her repeatedly by phone and text message and left voicemail messages repeatedly.

He also admitted he failed to appear for a court appearance in Dunfermline on July 14.

Depute fiscal Amy Robertson said the couple had met through a dating app and Kane had stayed in the woman’s home on one occasion.

However, after that, she became more and more put off by his “boastful” behaviour, which made her feel uncomfortable.

The messages sent by the refuge collector included: “I bet you miss me”, “I bet you can’t wait to see me again” and “You’ll never find anyone else like me.”

After these messages, the woman decided to end the relationship.

Defence solicitor Chris Sneddon said: “She terminated the relationship for reasons not known to him. He tried to contact her to find out what had happened.”

Sheriff Wylie Robertson fined Kane £740.
