Bar worker who told garda to ‘stop be­ing so rough’ fined

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

A BAR worker who had been drink­ing and told a garda to ‘stop be­ing so f**king rough’ when the garda was ar­rest­ing an­other male has been con­victed and fined af­ter he failed to ap­pear be­fore Swords Dis­trict Court with a char­i­ta­ble do­na­tion.

Roy Ma­hady (24) told the garda ‘go f **k you­self ’ when he was or­dered to leave the area.

He then ran off when gardai went to ar­rest him, the court heard.

Ma­hady, with an ad­dress of Lanes­bor­ough Mews in Fin­glas, pleaded guilty to fail­ing to com­ply with garda di­rec­tions on April 27 out­side the Wright Venue in Swords af­ter 3am. Garda Michael Mc­cal­lion told Swords Dis­trict Court he went to the scene fol­low­ing re­ports of men fight­ing.

He ar­rested one of the men and fol­low­ing a strug­gle, the man was be­ing restrained on the ground.

The de­fen­dant came to the scene and told Gda Mc­cal­lion to ‘stop be­ing so f **king rough.’

Gda Mc­cal­lion told Ma­hady to leave the scene, but Ma­hady stayed nearby watch­ing the ar­rest.

Or­der­ing Ma­hady to leave the area a sec­ond time, Ma­hady then shouted ‘What are you go­ing to f **king do?.’

He then told Gda Mc­cal­lion to ‘go f**k your­self,’ be­fore run­ning off. He was ar­rested a short time later.

The court heard the de­fen­dant had been drink­ing al­co­hol on the night and apol­o­gised to Gda Mc­cal­lion.

At a pre­vi­ous court sit­ting, Judge Conal Gib­bons had or­dered the de­fen­dant to do­nate €700 to the Ir­ish Cancer So­ci­ety and if the money was paid the Pro­ba­tion Act would be ap­plied.

How­ever, as the de­fen­dant failed to ap­pear be­fore Swords Dis­trict Court on the day his case was to be fi­nalised Judge Der­mot Dempsey im­posed the de­fault or­der of a con­vic­tion and €900 in the de­fen­dant’s ab­sence.
