A man who subjected three women to a catalogue of domestic abuse has been jailed for three years.
James Combe, 38, spat in the face of one of his former partners and threw boiled eggs at another.
He was convicted of three charges after a trial at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court.
Sheriff Jamie Gilchrist described Combe’s behaviour as “utterly disgraceful”.
Combe, of Sidlaw Street, Kirkcaldy, was found guilty of assaulting a former partner at an address in Glenrothes in February 2015.
He was also found guilty of assaulting another woman on March 19 2016, at an address in Glenrothes, by biting her finger, grabbing her by the body, slamming her against a wall and throwing boiled eggs at her.
He was found guilty of assaulting a third woman on various occasions between April 1 2016 and June 30 2018, both dates inclusive, at various locations in Kirkcaldy and while the couple were staying at a hotel in Glasgow.
The offences against the third woman were committed while he was on bail.
Sheriff Gilchrist jailed Combe for three years, with a supervised release order of 12 months. He also imposed a seven-year non-harassment order in relation to his most recent victim.
The sheriff told him: “The way you treated not one but three partners is utterly disgraceful.”
