Man with bro­ken nose with­draws com­plaint

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

A man who suf­fered a bro­ken nose in an as­sault with­drew his com­plaint at Sligo District Court.

Philip Kil­cullen told Judge Kevin Kil­rane that he had not been ap­proached by any­one or was not put un­der any pres­sure to with­draw his com­plaint of as­sault against Nathaniel Kelly (34) of 70 Jinks’ Av­enue.

Kelly was ac­cused of as­sault caus­ing harm to Mr Kil­cullen at HMV Sound Gar­den, Kempten Prom­e­nade on April 23rd 2017.

In­spec­tor Paul Kil­coyne put it to Mr Kil­cullen that he had made a com­plaint to Gar­daí that he had been as­saulted and that his nose had been bro­ken.

Mr Kil­cullen agreed he had com­plained but said his nose hadn’t been bro­ken, that it had been “just pushed to the left a bit.”

In­spec­tor Kil­coyne said he was in pos­ses­sion of a med­i­cal re­port which out­lined how there was a de­vi­a­tion in the nose and that a bone had been bro­ken. Mr Kil­cullen said he was happy to shake hands with Kelly and move on. “He has a busi­ness and a young child,” said Mr Kil­cullen.

The case was dis­missed by Judge Kevin Kil­rane.
