Intoxicated man tried to headbutt Garda car

A married father of two who tried to headbutt the back window of a patrol car was before Castlebar District Court on Wednesday.

Jimmy McDonagh, 11 The Grove, Castlebar, was arrested by Garda Fergal O’Gara on September 27 at 1.15am on Thomas Street, after the defendant became aggressive towards the garda during a Garda search of a car in which McDonagh was a passenger.

The defendant told Garda O’Gara to “fuck off” and when placed in the patrol car he remained in an aggressive state.

The defendant, who has one previous public order conviction, was convicted and fined €200 by Judge Mary Devins.
