A 60-year-old man who tried to get into the back of a Garda Armed Support Unit vehicle has been remanded on continuing bail to donate to charity.

Martin Shelbourne, Moneymore, Drogheda, pleaded guilty to charges of being intoxicated in public and failing to provide a garda with his name and address arising out of the incident in Peter Street, Drogheda, on 14 February last.

Evidence was presented that a ‘highly intoxicated and aggressive’ man tried to get into the back of a Garda Armed Support vehicle.

He then refused to give his details and was ‘highly uncooperative’.

There were no previous convictions.

Solicitor Siobhán Murphy said the defendant is married and has three adult children. He is on disability allowance.

He had been out for a drink and ‘had one too many’. He wanted to apologise.

Judge McKiernan said if €200 was paid to the Red Door Project by 11 July next the charges would be struck out.
