AN INVERKEITHING man has appeared back in court less than a fortnight after he was sentenced for offences against a paramedic and police officers.

Scott Dixon, 42, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

Dixon admitted that on October 10, at his home in Hill Street, Inverkeithing, he shouted, swore, made offensive comments and threw an item at a wall. The offence was aggravated by abuse of his partner.

He also admitted that at Hill Street and Dunfermline police station, he shouted, swore and made offensive and derogatory remarks towards police officers.

Sheriff Charles Lugton deferred sentence for reports until November 9 and bail was granted.

The court was told Dixon will now be living with a family member in Oxcars Drive, Dalgety Bay.

Less than two weeks earlier, Dixon had been told he had come close to a jail sentence for a spree of offending, including causing a disturbance at the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.

Dixon was so drunk he fell and struck his head after downing a bottle of vodka.

He became abusive towards ambulance staff and police, using homophobic and racist language.

Dixon had admitted a string of offences and sentence was deferred on some of them for good behaviour.

On January 4, at his home, he shouted, swore, made threats of violence repeatedly and made threats to harm himself when in possession of a knife.

On July 6, at his home in Hill Street, he repeatedly shouted and swore at his partner, punched a mirror, causing it to break, and brandished a shard of glass, threatening to self-harm.

On June 28, at Kirkcaldy rail station, he shouted, swore and made racial and homophobic comments towards police officers.

On the same day at the Victoria Hospital, he assaulted, obstructed or hindered a paramedic, behaved aggressively, kicked at equipment in an ambulance and repeatedly urinated himself deliberately.

For the latter incident, Sheriff Wylie Robertson imposed a community payback order with 160 hours of unpaid work and 14 months of supervision.

He deferred sentence on the other offences until January 25 for good behaviour and to monitor Dixon’s progress on his order.
