Young man apologises for bus disruption
A man who caused a disturbance on a bus apologised to the gardai for his behaviour.
Matthew Kelly (23), 53 Seacourt, Newcastle, appeared in Bray District Court last Thursday, July 20.
Gardaí were called to a disturbance on a Dublin Bus travelling from Bray to Greystones on May 9, 2016.
The court heard that when gardaí arrived to the scene at Mill Road in Greystones, Kelly was extremely drunk, and threatening and abusive towards gardaí.
Judge Alan Mitchell said that he would take the two charges into consideration along with previous matters from another sitting.
He said that he was in no way condoning the defendant’s behaviour and that this still represented two further convictions.
He asked Matthews had he learned a lesson, he replied that he had.
Solicitor Joe Maguire said that his client wished to apologise to the gardaí.
Judge Mitchell said that Kelly should also apologise to the court and to the other people who were on the bus at the time.
