A DUNFERMLINE woman beat up her partner in a Rosyth street and then slapped someone who intervened.

Claire Turnbull, 35, of Craigmyle Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on August 25 at Queensferry Road, Rosyth, she assaulted her partner by repeatedly pushing, punching and kicking him on the head and body.

She also admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, threatening violence and making sexually explicit remarks.

She further admitted that she assaulted another man by slapping him on the face.

The incident occurred around 3pm when Turnbull and her partner were both under the influence of alcohol, depute fiscal Dev Kapadia told the court.

Customers at a nearby pub heard the commotion and saw her attacking the man.

Afterwards, a customer came out of a café and tried to restrain Turnbull, who then slapped him.

She appeared from custody following another offence on October 14.

At Castle Avenue, Crosshill, she acted in a racially aggravated and aggressive manner towards a man, swore, made threats of violence and used racially offensive language.

This incident occurred after Turnbull was seen acting suspiciously in a shop, the court was told.

Defence solicitor James Moncrieff said his client came from a “difficult background”.

For the earlier offence, Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a community payback with 18 months’ supervision. He deferred sentence on the recent offence until January 17.
