TWO homeless men were arrested for having an "argy bargy" with each other while holding uncapped syringes in Dublin city centre.

Jamie Rafferty (23) and Daniel Bobrowski (33) refused to stop and shouted abuse when gardaí found them pushing and shoving each other violently in Temple Bar.

Judge Brian O'Shea found them both guilty of threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour and fined them.

They had denied the charges but did not appear in Dublin District Court for the hearing.

Gardaí said the accused were seen at Crampton Court on September 27 last year pushing and shoving each other and shouting aggressively.

Bobrowski had an uncapped syringe and told a garda: "f**k off, you can't take my drugs away", and "f**k off, I'm doing nothing".

Rafferty was also pushing and shoving, shouting and holding an uncapped needle. When told to drop it, he shouted: "You are being f**king stupid." When arrested, he shouted at the other accused to "shut the f**k up".

A defence lawyer said this was an "argy bargy" between two friends and no members of the public were threatened.

Rafferty was fined €120 and Bobrowski was fined €200.
