Man charged with dan­ger­ous driv­ing

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

A Rath­new man ac­cused of dan­ger­ous driv­ing was re­fused bail due to what Judge David Kennedy de­scribed as a ‘se­ri­ous at­tempt to evade ar­rest’.

Christo­pher Cos­grove (27), 88 Drumkay, Rath­new, ap­peared be­fore Wick­low District Court yes­ter­day (Tues­day).

He had been re­manded in cus­tody on Satur­day at a spe­cial sit­ting and was mak­ing a fresh bail ap­pli­ca­tion.

Cos­grave is ac­cused of dan­ger­ous driv­ing at Black­ditch, New­cas­tle, on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7, as well as driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied, driv­ing with­out a li­cence, and driv­ing with­out in­surance. The court heard that there may be fur­ther charges. So­lic­i­tor David Tar­rant said that on the pre­vi­ous Satur­day there was an ob­jec­tion to bail. He said that Cos­grove’s mother was in court on Tues­day and pre­pared to act as in­de­pen­dent surety. He said that Cos­grove had a small job which would be lost if he was kept in cus­tody.

Gar­dai said that they still have the same ob­jec­tions to bail. Judge Kennedy said that he could not grant bail, on the ba­sis of that be­hav­iour.

The mat­ter was ad­journed to Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 17.
