A jealous ex-boyfriend caused a scene when he accused his former girlfriend of speaking to another man on Facebook.
Stewart Scott then made threats towards the other man and wrapped a dog chain round his knuckles.
I was drunk
Scott, 27, of St Heliers Road, South Shore, pleaded guilty to breach of the peace.
He was bound over in the sum of £50 for six months by Blackpool magistrates.
Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Scott went round to his ex’s and was abusive on April 6 at 12.15pm.
After accusing her of speaking to another man on a social networking site, he made a reference to getting his dogs out.
Police officers were called to the property and Scott was charged.
Scott told magistrates: “I was just arguing with my ex-partner.
“I was drunk.”
