A HIGH VALLEYFIELD man walked away with a £600 fine after causing a "significant disturbance" in a Culross pub.

David Miller, 26, of Kinloss Court, shouted and swore, uttered offensive remarks and was spoiling for a fight at the Red Lion Inn, a 17th century establishment on Low Causeway.

He appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court last Wednesday.

Miller had previously admitted that on March 27, at the Red Lion Inn and the path at the back of the pub, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm by repeatedly shouting and swearing.

He also acted in an aggressive manner, entered the kitchen area of the Red Lion uninvited, uttered offensive remarks and challenged others to fight.

In addition, Miller admitted on March 16, at his address, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, smashing and causing damage to furniture, windows and doors.

He also threw items from a window and committed the offence while on bail, having been granted bail on July 6.

Defence solicitor Gordon Martin said these matters were alcohol related and the domestic incident happened in his own home when his partner was present.

Sheriff Derek Reekie told Miller: "Given that you have been of good behaviour I will not impose a custodial sentence. However, you caused a significant disturbance in a public house and in your own home while on bail."

Miller was fined £400 for his behaviour in the Red Lion and £200 for the damage in his own home.
