A Lochgelly man got into a fight with his son after an all-day drinking session.
As a result, 62-year-old Derrick Whyte, of Russell Street, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He admitted that on August 8 at his home, he challenged Christopher Whyte to a fight.
He then engaged in a fight with him and in the course of this he punched a glass panel in a door, damaging it.
Depute fiscal Jill Currie told the court Whyte had been drinking with others in his back garden during the day and this had continued in his house that evening.
Whyte then became involved in a dispute and altercation with his 35-year-old son.
The court was told Whyte has no idea what the argument with his son had been about.
Sheriff Alastair Brown, who fined Whyte £210 for the offence, told him: “This is the sort of thing that happens if you don’t control the amount of alcohol you have.”
