A KELTY motorist who mounted a kerb and drove at a man has been fined, banned and ordered to do unpaid work.

Alexander McArthur, 32, of Loch Leven Terrace, Kelty, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He was found guilty previously after a jury trial of three offences on May 11, 2020.

At Loch Leven Terrace, he assaulted a man by pursuing him in a car, drove at speed towards him and mounted a kerb.

At Blackhall Square, Kelty, he shouted, swore and made threats of violence repeatedly towards a man and woman.

Then, in Blackhall Road, Kelty, when driving a car, he failed to stop for a uniformed police officer.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said: “The background was there had been issues with the complainers and there was an altercation between other parties and Mr McArthur’s wife that day.”

Sheriff Charles Macnair told McArthur he had been found guilty of using his car as a weapon. “You didn’t hit him but that doesn’t make it any less of an assault.”

The sheriff imposed a community payback order with 250 hours of unpaid work and a fine of £520. McArthur was also banned from driving for 18 months.
