Bray People - - News -

A MAN WHO uri­nated in a phone box on Cas­tle Street must pay a to­tal of €1,250 in fines af­ter he failed to ap­pear at Bray District Court last Thurs­day.

Ed­ward De­laney, who told Gar­daí that he lives in a Dublin hos­tel, was drink­ing in front of a shop and be­hav­ing ag­gres­sively with an­other per­son. They were told to leave the area but dou­bled back.

De­laney was then caught emp­ty­ing his blad­der in­side a phone box. The court heard that he has eight pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions dat­ing back to 2002.

He was fined €500 in his ab­sence for be­ing drunk in pub­lic, €250 for uri­nat­ing in pub­lic ‘con­trary to pub­lic de­cency,’ and €500 for fail­ing to com­ply with the di­rec­tions of a Garda.
