Slash hook man is jailed

Bray People - - Front Page -

A 24-YEAR-OLD man who came af­ter gar­daí with a slash hook dur­ing a four-hour stand off in Rocky Val­ley was sen­tenced to a to­tal of 15 months in prison at Bray District Court.

James Moore­house (pic­tured above) was also con­victed of hav­ing an un­capped sy­ringe in his pocket when found un­con­scious in a McDon­ald’s toi­let last Jan­uary.

Judge Con­nel­lan said that it is ‘not tol­er­a­ble’ for Gar­daí to have to deal with com­ing across un­capped sy­ringes. ‘The pro­duc­tion of a slash hook and the un­pro­voked as­sault on Gar­daí is some­thing be­yond be­lief,’ said the Judge.
