Wicklow People - - NEWS -

A man who caused a dis­tur­bance on a bus apol­o­gised to the gar­dai for his be­hav­iour.

Matthew Kelly (23), 53 Sea­court, New­cas­tle, ap­peared in Bray Dis­trict Court last Thurs­day, July 20.

Gar­daí were called to a dis­tur­bance on a Dublin Bus trav­el­ling from Bray to Grey­stones on May 9, 2016.

The court heard that when gar­daí ar­rived to the scene at Mill Road in Grey­stones, Kelly was ex­tremely drunk, and threat­en­ing and abu­sive to­wards gar­daí.

Judge Alan Mitchell said that he would take the two charges into con­sid­er­a­tion along with pre­vi­ous mat­ters from an­other sit­ting.

He said that he was in no way con­don­ing the de­fen­dant’s be­hav­iour and that this still rep­re­sented two fur­ther con­vic­tions.

He asked Matthews had he learned a les­son, he replied that he had.

So­lic­i­tor Joe Maguire said that his client wished to apol­o­gise to the gar­daí.

Judge Mitchell said that Kelly should also apol­o­gise to the court and to the other peo­ple who were on the bus atthetime.
