26-year-old James Marry from Bath Road in Balbriggan took his clothes off and smeared poo all over his naked body, and the cell gardai were keeping him, after he punched a garda in McDonald’s.

The dirty protester told a court that he was "ashamed and embarrassed" before he was sentenced to eight months in prison by Judge Dermot Dempsey, who asked:

"What sort of animal carries on like he did in the cell?"

Marry pleaded guilty at the local district court to using threatening and abusive behaviour, being intoxicated and assaulting Gda Colin Fitzpatrick at McDonald's, Millfield Shopping Centre, Balbriggan, last October, reports The Herald. 

The offender also admitted to causing criminal damage to a cell at Balbriggan Garda Station and to unauthorised carriage in a car last January at Irishtown, Gormanston.

The court heard that Marry was involved in an altercation with two other men in McDonalds.

When gardai intervened Marry jumped on Gda Fitzpatrick’s back punched him in the side of the face several times and ripped his shirt and stab vest.

The savage continued to behave aggressively at the garda station which resulted in him stripping off, excreting in the cell and smearing his body and the walls with poo.

The court heard that Marry was also a passenger in a silver BMW that was being driven at high speed and overtaking other cars in a dangerous manner last January.

He has six previous convictions.
