Was abusive to passers-by and threw traffic cones at vehicles
A 20-year-old man who threw traffic cones at vehicles was given a suspended prison sentence last Thursday at Banbridge Magistrates Court.
Michael Loughlin, Hillhead Close, Banbridge, admitted disorderly behaviour on November 1 this year.
The court heard that at 4.30pm Loughlin and another person were in Linenhall Street in Banbridge. The defendant was abusive and threw traffic cones at traffic.
A solicitor representing Loughlin explained that at the previous week’s court his client had been given a four month suspended sentence.
This case had involved ripping a T-shirt belonging to a barman.
The solicitor said steps to deal with the defendant’s alcohol problem had started on Monday.
District Judge Amanda Brady imposed a two month term, suspended for 12 months, to run alongside the other sentence.
