Young man swore at Gardaí
AN 18-year-old Shankill man was given a suspended sentence for telling Gardai to f***k off.
Craig McDonald of 17 Rathsallagh Drive was stopped by Gardai at Rathsallagh Drive on July 12.
Gardai had given chase to a man across the green area close to Rathsallagh Drive a few minutes before they met McDonald.
When they stopped him he said, ‘You can f*** off I haven’t done anything.
The court was told that McDonald has a drink problem and has been before the court before. Judge Murrough Connellan told McDonald that he didn’t like the language used or his behaviour towards the Gardaí.
He gave McDonald three months in detention suspended for one year provided McDonald keeps the peace for that year.
