Flashed­back­side atGar­dai

The Argus - - NEWS -

A man who ‘flashed his back­side’ at Gar­dai in a squad car thought it was his mates’ ve­hi­cle, the dis­trict court heard last week.

Conor Con­nolly, (22), Rood­stown, Ardee, was seen to be ‘highly in­tox­i­cated’ at Park Street shortly af­ter 3.30am on Christ­mas Eve. Gar­dai said he was ‘act­ing ag­gres­sively’, kicking the shut­ters of a shop win­dow, and then pulled the jeans down and flashed his back­side. And when Gar­dai asked for his de­tails, he ini­tially gave his brother’s.

Con­nolly, who has no pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions, was out for Christ­mas and had fin­ished work on De­cem­ber 23, solic­i­tor Barry Cal­lan said. His client had ‘con­sumed far more drink than usual’.

Con­nolly was in the com­pany of friends and ‘when he heard some­one beep­ing from be­hind him, he thought it was his friends, but un­for­tu­nately for him it was the Gar­dai. He may learn a les­son from this as he was held for some time at the sta­tion’. Cal­lan also wanted to apol­o­gise to Gar­dai for his be­hav­iour.

Judge Flann Bren­nan ap­plied the Pro­ba­tion Act and dis­missed the charge.
