The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS - By SINEAD KELLE­HER

A KILLORGLIN man, who put his head in the win­dow of a pa­trol car and tried to grab a garda, after the garda ve­hi­cle stopped to ask him his name and ad­dress, was con­victed and fined €250 for re­sist­ing gar­daí.

Killorglin Dis­trict Court, held in Ca­her­siveen, heard that Ae­neas Fer­ris of Gort­naskerry Killorglin was walk­ing in the mid­dle of the road on Fe­bru­ary 9, 2018 at Lang­ford Street, Killorglin, when garda came upon him.

They stopped and asked his name and ad­dress and he started call­ing them names. He then put his hand in the win­dow of the pa­trol car and tried to grab Garda Doyle.

He also threatened the gar­daí with phys­i­cal vi­o­lence by putting his hands up for a fight.

The court heard that the 39-year old man had called to his brother-in-law’s house to speak to him and, as a re­sult, gar­daí had been called and he ‘over­re­acted’ as he is go­ing through some fam­ily mat­ters, the court heard.
