Bray People - - Bray People -

‘I’LL GET some­thing to sort you out,’ a Newtownmountkennedy man threat­ened gar­daí while they were try­ing to carry out an ar­rest.

Ian Rushe of 46 Sy­camore Drive, ap­peared on charges of be­ing drunk in pub­lic and threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour at Sy­camore Drive on Fe­bru­ary 16.

The court heard that Rushe, who is cur­rently serv­ing a six-month sen­tence, was in­volved in a dis­tur­bance on the night.

While garda Sharon Mooney was try­ing to carry out an ar­rest on Rushe’s brother, Rushe said he was go­ing to get some­thing to sort them out. He then went into the house and came out with an ob­ject but gar­daí could not de­ter­mine what it was

The other gar­daí at the scene who had taken out their ba­tons were forced to re­trieve them and to leave the scene as they deemed it too danger­ous.

Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan con­victed and sen­tenced Rushe, who has 56 pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions, to one month in jail for threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour.

He dis­missed the be­ing drunk in pub­lic charge with the ben­e­fit of the pro­ba­tion act.
