A man who was aggressive towards Gardai after somebody lit a fire on a green area outside his home has appeared in court.
Danny Connors, of Canal Road, Letterkenny, appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with public order offences.
The court heard that Connors had been drinking when somebody lit a fire on the green area.
He came out to remonstrate with them and had been aggressive to Gardai when they arrived telling them to “f*** off.”
He became aggressive and then attempted to flee back into his house but was arrested by Gardai.
Solicitor Michael Shiel said his client knows he should not have taken the law into his own hands but has put his hands up to the charges.
He added his client did not have a glowing record saying he did have a number of previous convictions and had spent time in prison.
Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case until May 17th for a probation and welfare report.
