A Lochgelly man has been jailed for drug dealing and being abusive to police officers.

The offending goes back more than four years and 38-year-old Aaron Kyle had initially avoided prison but then breached his court orders, failing to complete unpaid work.

As a result, Kyle, of Dundas Street, was back in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court to be sentenced again.

He previously admitted that on June 5, 2019 at his then home at High Street, Lochgelly, he was concerned in the supply of cannabis.

He also admitted offences committed on December 5, 2021 at Hall Street, Cowdenbeath.

He failed to identify the driver of his car following an alleged offence. He also failed to co-operate with a preliminary breath test. He then acted in a racially aggravated manner, shouted, swore and made derogatory comments.

He further admitted that at Dunfermline police station he shouted, swore and used abusive language.

The court was told previously that police were investigating an incident involving Kyle’s car but he would not tell them who had been driving the vehicle and became abusive.

It was now accepted he was not the driver when the incident occurred.

Sheriff Charles Macnair told Kyle he had been fortunate to avoid jail in the first place and then he had then done only 29 out of 300 hours of unpaid work.

He jailed Kyle for 324 days and banned him from driving for 11 months.
