Breach of the peace at village institute

FIFE MAN ON BREACH CHARGE

Thomas Lamont, apprentice joiner, Main Street, Cairneyhill, was admonished at Dunfermline Sheriff Court today for having committed a breach of the peace on 16th December in Cairneyhill village institute, Main Street, Cairneyhill.

Mr A Mitchell, solicitor, on accused’s behalf, said accused, who was a member of the institute, turned up about a quarter to ten and found the door locked. He began to push it. The caretaker came out and asked what the noise was about.

They started an argument as to whether the caretaker was entitled to shut the door. The caretaker proceeded to try to throw him out and there was a breach of the peace.

Mr R J Waugh, procurator fiscal, said the caretaker’s statement was that accused adopted a threatening attitude.
