A LOCHGELLY man threatened a shop worker when she asked him for ID.

Ryan Adsely, 24, of Melville Street, previously admitted that on December 1 at the Co-operative, Bank Street, he did behave in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm in that he did shout, swear, act in an aggressive manner and utter threats of violence, and he did commit this offence while on bail, having been granted bail on August 4 and October 20.

Depute fiscal, Carrie Stevens, told Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Wednesday that at around 5.30pm on December 1, Adsley entered the Co-op in Lochgelly, approached the till and asked for a bottle of alcohol.

"He was asked to give ID and in response began shouting at the shop assistant," Ms Stevens said.

Adsely said to the shop assistant: "You're from Lochgelly and I will see you about."

The police were contacted after he left the shop and he was later traced.

Defence solicitor, Ian Beatson, said: "He attended the shop to buy alcohol, but he did not have ID.

"Both parties were known to each other - they went to the same school.

"He had also proved his age with ID previously and he thought she was doing it deliberately."

Adsely was sentenced with a three months restriction of liberty order, which means he must stay in his property between the hours of 7pm and 7am daily.
