A KELTY man shouted at his 75-year-old dad and then became involved in a physical struggle with him.

The incident occurred when John Connelly was put out of his dad’s home because of the racket he was making by shouting and singing.

Connelly, 49, of Loch Leven Terrace, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing.

He admitted previously that on August 22, at Clentry Crescent, Kelty, he shouted, acted aggressively and struggled with Francis Connelly.

Depute fiscal Michael Robertson said Connelly and his dad had been drinking together that day.

At around 7pm, Connelly was seen by witnesses shouting and singing, with his dad asking him to keep the noise down.

“He responded by shouting even louder,” said the depute.

Police were called and Connelly was arrested.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said: “He must accept that at times he drinks to excess. His father had put him out the house because he didn’t want his neighbours to be disturbed by the noise.

“There was then this kerfuffle between them.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry fined Connelly £420.
