A drunk man caused a disturbance at a Kelty care home where the residents were having their breakfast.

Ryan McTaggart did not know anyone in the care home but, in his drunken stupor, thought he did.

It turned out to be an expensive mistake for 22-year-old McTaggart, of Waulkmill Way, Barrhead, when he appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on February 12, at Benarty View Care Home, Rowan Lea, Kelty, he attended uninvited, shouted, refused to leave when asked to do so, struck windows and doors and threw a tin of juice at the windows.

Depute fiscal Catherine Stevenson said the incident occurred at about 9.30am when breakfast was being served at the home.

Suddenly a male appeared banging on the front door shouting “Let me in, let me in” which caused alarm to the residents.

He walked around the building trying to find a way in. He again shouted: “Let me in, my pals are in there.”

The police were called to deal with the matter.

McTaggart, who was representing himself, told the court he had been “drinking all night” before the incident and wrongly thought this was a building he had been to a few hours earlier.

Sheriff Wylie Robertson fined McTaggart £1040.
