A WOMAN who threw a mobile phone during a scuffle after a night out has been fined.

Angela Cooper, 39, whose address was given on Court papers as Brucefield Terrace, Lumphinnans, but was read out in Court as Beath View, Dunfermline, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

She had previously admitted that on January 13, at a house in Westburn Avenue, Cowdenbeath she acted in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear and alarm when she shouted, swore, struggled with a former partner and another woman who she also threw a phone at.

Depute fiscal, Dev Kapadia, said Cooper and her former partner had broken up prior to this incident and, on January 13, there appeared to be an argument with the former partner.

She started shouting and swearing at him which then ended up in a struggle between the two parties. There was a female who they had been socialising with present and alcohol had been consumed.

An argument then broke out between the three and, as a result, Cooper threw a mobile phone which then broke.

Sheriff James MacDonald said the relationship appeared to be "toxic" and fined Cooper £230.
