A 32 year old man who “just wanted to go to bed” was arrested during a disturbance in Stranorlar.
Mark Doherty was found by Gardai at 104 Ard Macool on October 20th last and was under the influence of alcohol.
When Gardai went to speak to him, the father-of-two called them “f***ing pigs” and had to be restrained.
Letterkenny District Court heard Doherty had been asked to leave the address by a woman but said he just wanted to go to bed.
“He thought he could sort it out but it just got worse,” said his solicitor.
Doherty had worked in the construction industry but work had dried up and he was now doing a computer course and hoping to go to third level education.
Judge Denis Fitzpatrick adjourned the case to see if Doherty was fit to complete community service.
