Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

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.
