A 46-YEAR-OLD man was put on a project to address his domestic abuse when he appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

In the dock was Keiran McAuley, of Wilson Street, Townhill.

He previously admitted that on December 22, at an address in Cowdenbeath, he shouted and swore at his then partner, behaved aggressively, threw household items about and placed her in a state of fear and alarm.

He also admitted that on February 24, at the same address in Cowdenbeath, he repeatedly shouted, swore, acted aggressively and made threats of violence towards his ex-partner, another female and her family.

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a two-year community payback order with the condition that McAuley attended the Caledonian Project.
