Man ar­rested while naked and bleed­ing

DISTRICT COURT MEM­ORY ‘HAZY’ DUE TO AL­CO­HOL

Bray People - - Social Scene -

A MAN who was ar­rested when naked, drunk, bleed­ing and stand­ing over his preg­nant girl­friend banged his head against the fridge when gar­dai went in to the house, it emerged at Bray District Court.

Ben Brady, 169 Shanganagh Cliffs, Shankill, was sent to prison for three months, when Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan heard that he had pushed Gar­dai away to­wards a flight of steps.

Garda O’Reilly told the court that he re­ceived a call to 20A Ve­vay Road where Brady was shout­ing at his girl­friend.

An­other cou­ple had locked them­selves in to a room of the house. He lunged at gar­dai, push­ing them to­wards a stairs. It took six of them to ar­rest him, the court heard.

Brady apol­o­gised to the court for his be­hav­iour. His so­lic­i­tor Con­way O’Hara said that his client’s mem­ory of the night was very hazy due to al­co­hol.

His girl­friend’s fa­ther was in court with him on Thurs­day. Brady is a labourer by day and a bar­man by night.

’No doubt he ut­tered the same apolo­getic sen­ti­ments last April when he was bound to the peace and re­ceived a sus­pended sen­tence,’ re­marked Judge Con­nel­lan be­fore con­vict­ing the de­fen­dant.
