REFUSING to leave his ex's house after causing a disturbance there landed a Kelty man in Court this week.

David Ramsay, 20, of Keltyhill Road, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

He had previously admitted that on December 2, 2018, at a property in Manse Road, Crossgates, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, acting in an aggressive manner towards his ex partner, refusing to leave when requested to do so and struggling with her.

Depute fiscal, Dev Kapadia, said the couple had been together for around 13 months and had a child together. The relationship had come to an end about six months prior to the incident.

Ramsay had stayed at his former partner's home as he had been looking after the baby while she went out with a friend.

The next morning, an argument broke out and Ramsay was repeatedly asked to leave, however, he said he wouldn't until his lift arrived.

Sheriff Charles Macnair said the offence was committed while Ramsay was already on a community payback order for another domestic offence.

"It was an incident that took place over some time and involved physical connection between you and the complainer in that you struggled with her rather than just leaving the property as she had every right to tell you to do," he said.

"Once she told you to leave, you had no business to remain."

He placed Ramsay on a restriction of liberty order for 135 days requiring him to stay in his home address between 7pm and 7am. He also granted a non harassment order banning him from contacting his former partner or entering her street.
