Bray People - - Inprofile -

AN ARK­LOW MAN who hit a bar­man in the pres­ence of Gar­daí has been bound to the peace for one year at District Court.

Eu­gene Kin­sella with an ad­dress at 12 Glen­view Av­enue, Thomas­town was charged with in­tox­i­ca­tion in a pub­lic place and threat­en­ing, abu­sive and in­sult­ing be­hav­iour at The Gin Mill on Jan­uary 25, 2009. Garda Ai­dan Whe­lan told the court that he at­tended the venue fol­low­ing a re­port of a fight on the premises.

Upon ar­rival Kin­sella was re­strained by a bar­man and when he was re­leased to speak to Gar­daí lashed out at the staff mem­ber.

He sub­se­quently called Sgt. Gabriel Plower a w**ker and in­vited him to fight out- side the Garda Sta­tion.

Kin­sella told the court that he was try­ing to break up a fight be­tween two oth­ers at a party and hit the bar­man un­in­ten­tion­ally.

He de­nied ver­bally abus­ing Gar­daí.

Com­ment­ing that Kin­sella is a ‘bit long in the tooth for such be­hav­iour’ he or­dered him to en­ter the peace bond for €250.
