Drunk man restrained by four bouncers

A 34-year-old store assistant with 19 previous convictions was before Castlebar District Court this week for being threatening and abusive.

On St Patrick’s Day at 10.25pm Garda John Melia was called to a disturbance outside Bar One, Rush Street, Castlebar.

When Garda Melia arrived he observed Andrzejczak Slawomir, 5 Burleigh Court, Castlebar, being restrained by four doormen on the ground outside the premises.

The intoxicated man was threatening and abusive to the doormen and when released from the bouncers’ grip, Slawomir leapt to his feet with his fists clenched. When the defendant noticed that gardaí were present he calmed down.

The court heard that the Polish national who has been in the country for six years, has 19 previous convictions and is currently employed in a sports shop in Castlebar.

Judge Mary Devins said to the defendant that between now and an adjourned date for sentencing that “you must stay out of trouble otherwise you will be sent to prison for 15 months”.

For the section six public order offence Slawomir was convicted and fined €500 and remanded on continuing bail to October 20 for sentencing.

For failing to attend court on a previous date, the defendant was convicted and fined €500 and remanded on continuing bail to October 20 for sentencing.
