A WOMAN on a Christmas night out with her sisters ended up getting arrested.
Kathleen Mitchell was so drunk she ended up kicking a Garda at the Four Lanterns in Letterkenny, the local District Court was told.
Inspector David Murphy told Judge Paul Kelly that the incident happened on St Stephen’s Night last year in the town.
It was 3.50am on December 27 and Gardai were called to the Four Lanterns on Lower Main Street in response to a report of a female acting in an aggressive manner.
“Gardai found Ms Mitchell intoxicated and extremely aggressive,” said Inspector Murphy.
Mitchell, 31, from Glenard Park, Long Lane, admitted being drunk and acting in a threatening and abusive way and obstructing Gardai.
Defence solicitor Patsy Gallagher said she deeply regretted the incident.
“She was out with her two sisters and another friend and she accepts she acted totally inappropriately,” he said.
Judge Paul Kelly fined Mitchell a total of €400.
