A man who “kicked off” in a shop and threw a packet of nuts at a customer has been jailed for three months.
Gardaí attending the scene found Barry Doogan (42) hiding behind a taxi, Blanchardstown District Court heard.
Judge David McHugh sentenced Doogan to three months in prison.
Doogan, of Horan Hall, Belgard Square, Tallaght admitted public intoxication and threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour, as well as a separate charge of theft.
The court heard gardaí were called to Londis, Bawnogue, Clondalkin on August 6, 2021.
It was reported the accused was “kicking off and being aggressive”. When gardaí arrived, security pointed out Doogan who was hiding behind a taxi.
