A KELTY woman walked into a man’s home and smashed his 55-inch TV because her ex-partner was watching it at the time.

The former partner of Helen Boyle had gone to watch football at the home of a neighbour.

She marched into the flat and knocked over the TV.

As a result, Boyle, 37, of Keltyhill Avenue, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on October 20, at North Drum Street, Kelty, she behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, making offensive remarks and pulled a TV to the floor, causing damage to it and followed her ex-partner around.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said Boyle and the complainer had been in a relationship but had split up two days before the offence. He had gone to his downstairs neighbour at around 5pm to watch a football match.

At 10.30pm, the neighbour and the complainer were in the living room when the front door was opened and Boyle came in.

“She walked over to a 55-inch TV and pushed it over, smashing its screen. She then turned to Mr Malcolm and started shouting at him.”

She called him a “d***” and a “f****** idiot”, added the depute.

Police were contacted and Boyle admitted later: “I was out of order”.

The TV could not be repaired and the owner was £600 out of pocket.

The court was told Boyle had been drinking and could not remember anything about the incident.

Sheriff Charles MacNair fined Boyle £375 and ordered her to pay £600 compensation.
