A 37-YEAR-OLD man made threats in a High Street store in Dunfermline after being told he was barred.

Christopher Godden, formerly of Rosyth, now of Michael Street, Buckhaven, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on April 13 last year at the Marks and Spencer store, High Street, Dunfermline, he made threats whilst in possession of a bottle.

On the same day, at Willow Crescent, Rosyth, he shouted, swore, acted aggressively, challenged persons to fight and made threats towards police officers.

Depute fiscal Charlotte Allan told the court that a shop worker spotted Godden and knew he was barred.

Godden was holding a bottle of alcohol in his hand when he was told to leave the premises.

He warned the worker to watch what they were saying to him when he was holding a bottle.

Godden then said: “You don’t who I am. I’m well-known in Dunfermline.”

Later that day, when Godden returned to his home in Rosyth, he was unable to find his keys and started shouting.

He was swearing and challenging people to fight which resulted in the police being called and him being arrested.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said: "The issue here is one of alcohol misuse.”

Sheriff Mark O’Hanlon imposed a community payback order with 135 hours of unpaid work.
