Man uri­nat­ing in pub­lic gave a false name

Bray People - - News -

‘DID THEY ac­tu­ally see me p*ss on the street?,’ replied a Wick­low man when ar­rested by gar­daí for uri­nat­ing on Bray Main Street.

Noel Smith of 6 Kil­mantin Hill, ap­peared in court on charges of re­fus­ing to give his name and ad­dress, of threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour and uri­nat­ing in pub­lic on Bray Main Street on De­cem­ber 9.

Garda Eimear O’Le­na­han told the court that while on pa­trol she saw Smith uri­nat­ing and it took her three times to ask him if he was uri­nat­ing for him to an­swer her.

He then gave her a false name say­ing that his name was Noel Simp­son.

In court Smith said he didn’t give a false name and that the garda must have heard him wrong.

He said he was very drunk and was wait­ing for the last bus to go home, so when the gar­daí stopped him he said he may have, ‘ said some things but I don’t re­ally re­mem­ber’.

‘But you can re­mem­ber not giv­ing a false name. I don’t be­lieve in se­lec­tive mem­ory,’ Judge rough Con­nel­lan Smith.

For giv­ing a false name Judge Con­nel­lan con­victed and fined Smith €100 and for uri­nat­ing in pub­lic he or­dered Smith to en­ter a bond to keep the peace for one year. Mur
