Man told to make donation to Garda Benevolent Fund
A FATHER of three sets of twins, who became aggressive and abusive towards gardai was drunk at the time, a court has heard.
Salim Mrisho (31) went drinking on the night and has a poor recollection of events, Balbriggan District Court heard.
He exited a vehicle at 4.10am and started to shout profanities towards gardai and became aggressive.
He was arrested and continued his aggression towards gardai. The defendant, of Hollybank Road in Drumcondra pleaded guilty to using threatening and abusive behaviour and being intoxicated on October 1st at Railway Street in Balbriggan. He has three previous road traffic convictions. Defence solicitor Fiona D’arcy said the defendant has asked her to apologise on his behalf.
‘He was exhausted at the time and as he has three sets of twins he went for a few drinks, which is understandable,’ she said, adding the defendant can’t believe he acted the way he did.
‘He is anxious about getting a conviction and if given time he can come up with a charitable donation,’ she said.
Judge John Cheatle said if the defendant comes up with €50 for the Garda Benevolent Fund by November 16th he will strike the case out.
