In­tox­i­cated on the dou­ble

Wexford People - - NEWS -

Two con­vic­tions for pub­lic or­der of­fences were recorded at the District Court against Michael O’Brien (51), ad­dress given as Ozanam House, Thomas Street, Wex­ford.

The first oc­curred on the evening of May 24 when Garda Kevin Larkin was called to the Ozanam House hos­tel in re­sponse a re­port of a highly in­tox­i­cated res­i­dent. The cul­prit turned out to be O’Brien, whom the garda dis­cov­ered in an un­steady state on Thomas Street, where he was ar­rested.

On the night of June 1, it was the turn of Garda Eamonn Cahill to in­ves­ti­gate when hos­tel staff called in to re­port that the same man had been re­fused en­try to the hos­tel.

On this oc­ca­sion, O’Brien was so in­tox­i­cated that he was a dan­ger to him­self and he was once more ap­pre­hended and brought to the bar­racks.

The ac­cused man was not in court as Judge Ger­ard Haughton handed down two fines of €200 each.
