Drunken abuse

Bray People - - Bray People -

‘WHY DIDN’T you get happy, or kind of smi­ley, why abu­sive?’ Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan asked a man charged with be­ing drunk and dis­or­derly who told him he had been out all day for a friend’s birth­day at the time of his ar­rest.

Damien Forde, 25 Ard Na Greine, was very drunk and abu­sive to the pub­lic at Sta­tion Road on Septem­ber 12 at 1.10 a.m., the court heard.

‘I can’t re­mem­ber back that far,’ he told Judge Con­nel­lan af­ter the en­quiry. ‘You know now that when you get drunk you get ag­gres­sive. That’s what drink does to you Mr. Forde. I don’t want to see you here again,’ said Judge Con­nel­lan be­fore dis­miss­ing the charge with the ben­e­fit of the pro­ba­tion act.
