A Dunfermline man vandalised the home of his mother, smashing windows and threatening her partner.

Graham Campbell, 32, of Broomhead Drive, appeared Dunfermline Sheriff Court by video-link from prison.

He admitted that on May 9 at Broomhead Drive he acted in an aggressive manner.

He shouted, swore, incited violence, made threats, smashed windows, all whilst brandishing a piece of wood and attempted to spit at police officers.

He was also breaching bail conditions, imposed on April 29, when he attended at the premises where the offence was committed and tried to contact the two people there.

Depute fiscal Brogan Moffat said the background to the incident was that Campbell lives next door to his mother and her partner.

The couple became concerned about a commotion coming from Campbell’s home at 12.30am after hearing him shouting, swearing and throwing things about.

Campbell began striking his mum’s windows with a piece of wood and shouted to the man: “I’m going to get you, you p****.”

He hit the kitchen window and then the bathroom window, smashing it.

Police were called to the scene and found Campbell intoxicated. He began spitting at the officers and a spit-hood was put on him.

Last October, Campbell was fined for causing a similar disturbance at his mum’s home when he was threatening to “do in” her partner.

In that case, Campbell’s solicitor said he was “over-protective” towards his mother.

Sheriff Clair McLachlan jailed Campbell for six months.
