Judge scorns man for throw­ing shapes in sta­tion

Bray People - - News -

‘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.
