Judge scorns man for throwing shapes in station
‘THROWING SHAPES in public is one thing but continuing on in the garda station after being arrested is a totally different matter,’ Judge Murrough Connellan warned a young man before him in Bray District Court last week.
William Moorehouse of 4 Heatherwood, Boghall Road, along with a co-accused, Michael Moorehouse, 29 Cedar Court, Boghall Road, appeared on charges of being drunk in public and threatening and abusive behaviour on Main Street, Bray, on November 9.
Garda John O’Reilly told the court on the night he was responding to a call of a row outside a pub.
When he got their the two men were arguing and were very drunk.
He said that 21-year-old, William Moorehouse was very drunk and insulting and was directed to leave the area on a number of occasions but he continued to shout abusive language to members of the public and the gardaí.
When the gardaí arrived, Michael Moorehouse calmed down and was very cooperative with them.
Judge Murrough Connellan told the defendants that he realised William Moorehouse was the instigator and he noted the insulting words used by him and his continuation of abuse back in the garda station.
He remanded William Moorehouse to Bray District Court on June 4 to see if he comes to the attention of gardaí again.
The court heard Michael Moorehouse is 33 and single and he apologised to the court saying that at his age he should have known better. Judge Murrough dismissed the charges with the benefit of the Probation Act.
