A 32-year-old man was throwing things about, shouting and swearing after a drunken row with his partner in Cardenden.

Terry McMillan, of Leslie Street, Kirkcaldy, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He previously admitted that on September 18 last year at Cluny Park, Cardenden, he shouted, swore and threw various items about in a domestically aggravated offence.

Depute fiscal Amy Robertson said the couple had been drinking throughout the night and an argument began in the morning.

The woman wanted to go to sleep but McMillan wanted to keep talking to her.

She told him, “Shut up, just go to sleep” but this annoyed him further.

He went downstairs and began throwing items about the living room. The woman went to see what was happening and he shouted: “Why don’t you love me?”

The woman was visibly upset when she turned up at a neighbour’s door to get away from him.

Sheriff Francis Gill told McMillan: “Your reaction was extreme. There was no excuse for behaving in this way.”

He imposed a 15-week restriction of liberty order.
