A KELTY man assaulted two police officers after causing a disturbance on Hogmanay.

Deane Hunter was involved in a fight at a bar in Cowdenbeath before kicking at the police constables.

As a result, Hunter, 25, of Cocklaw Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on December 31, at Partners Bar, High Street, Cowdenbeath, he acted aggressively, kicked and struck the doors and windows, refused to leave when asked to do so and fought with three men.

He also admitted that at Hall Street, Cowdenbeath, he assaulted a police officer by repeatedly kicking him on the body. He then assaulted another police officer by repeatedly kicking her on the body.

The court was told Hunter was already on a community payback order.

Sheriff Derek Reekie told Hunter: “This is a very serious matter involving two assaults on police officers. All sentencing options will be considered by the court.”

He called for reports and Hunter will be sentenced on April 24.
