Woman climbed on bonnet
A motorist who struck a woman with his car in Fife following a squabble over a child in a car seat has been sentenced.
William Dow admitted acting in a threatening or abusive manner and driving dangerously in Kinglassie on May 4 in 2020.
Dow, whose address at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court was listed as a mobile home park in Carterton, Oxfordshire, became embroiled in an argument with his former partner in Mina Crescent.
Fiscal depute Ronnie Hay previously explained Dow and his ex met and Dow’s partner attempted to remove the car seat and child from his car, causing the accused to “become aggressive”.
Neighbours’ attention was drawn to the scene and a woman stepped in front of the car to prevent Dow leaving.
Mr Hay said Dow began to drive “very slowly” and the woman climbed onto his bonnet.
Dow reversed and the woman fell to the ground.
He left the vehicle and was told the police were being contacted so he returned the child and car seat.
Sheriff Charles Lugton imposed 270 hours of unpaid work, to be completed in a year.
During that time, Dow will also be under supervision and banned from driving.
The sheriff also imposed a non-harassment order.
