A Dalgety Bay man sentenced to 10 months’ detention on Wednesday had another nine months added to his sentence when he returned to Dunfermline Sheriff Court just 24 hours later.
Callum Campbell-Dunn, 19, of Barnhill Road, was back in the same dock and admitted charges relating to an incident in Harbour Drive, Dalgety Bay, on September 11, when he was found slumped over the steering wheel by police.
He admitted that he was in charge of a car having consumed excess alcohol (58 mic). The legal limit is 35 mic.
He further admitted assaulting PC Lynn Law, grabbing her body and twisting her wrist, to her injury and also assaulting PC Angela Dryburgh by pushing her on the body.
Depute fiscal Sam Johnston said the officers were on a routine mobile patrol at around 2am when they came across a car with both windows open and Campbell-Dunn slumped over the wheel with the keys in the ignition and the dashboard lit up.
He had been sick and there was a smell of alcohol, the depute fiscal added. At first Campbell-Dunn “pretended to be sleeping” but then started “rambling”.
When the officers tried to take him out of the vehicle, he started struggling and managed at one point to break free, twisting the wrist of PC Law.
Defence agent Barbara Collie said: “The state my client was in, he wasn’t thinking straight.”
Sheriff Craig McSherry, looking at Campbell-Dunn’s record, said: “You’ve not only got a problem with alcohol but also with the police.”
He sentenced Campbell-Dunn to nine months’ detention, which will follow on from his existing sentence.
