A FATHER who was threatening towards his former partner and threw his child has appeared in Court.

Shane Sullivan, 25, of Paul Street, Lochgelly, previously admitted that on June 2, at an address in Kelty, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm in that he did shout, swear and act in an aggressive manner towards his ex-partner.

Dunfermline Sheriff Court heard that the parties had been in a on/off relationship for around three years and have one child.

The complainer had been on a night out with her friends and the next morning Sullivan turned up uninvited wishing to see his son.

She didn't want to have an argument with the accused so she went off to her bedroom.

Sullivan then entered the bedroom holding their child in his arms.

He shouted, "tell me who your f***ing boyfriend was then", and threw the child on to the bed.

He also kicked a door causing damage before leaving the property.

The complainer was left alarmed and contacted the police.

Sheriff Alastair Brown said: "The Court, like society, does not approve of domestic abuse.

"Co-operation with parents does not work with one person insisting to have their own way and if you don't understand that you were going to get into more trouble in the future."

The Sheriff imposed a three years of supervision and a requirement to undertake the Caledonian (domestic abuse) Programme, as well as 90 hours unpaid work.

He is also subject to a non-harassment order for five years.
