A violent struggle inside a parked car ended with a man biting his partner’s arm.

Brian Kemp (52), 4 Castle Avenue, Carronshore, appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday having admitted the assault he committed in Bothkennar Road, Carronshore on July 30.

Defence solicitor Gordon Addison said there was a great deal of pressure within the relationship and what Kemp did was out of character.

Sheriff Derek Livingston said: “If the car had been moving then this would have been a much more serious offence. You did burst the skin of the complainer.”

Sentence was deferred on Kemp for four months for good behaviour.
