A Mullingar man has been fined €250 for threatening behaviour after he was involved in a row with a woman.
Audrius Budreckis of 13 The Green, Lakepoint Park, Mullingar was seen on Oliver Plunkett Street on May 9 2009 at 2.50am involved in a dispute with a woman.
Both were pushing each other, Inspector Jarlath Folan told the court and both were drunk with a strong smell of alcohol coming from the 31-year-old Lithuanian man.
He began acting aggressively and started shouting and he was abusive to others.
Mr Louis Kiernan said the father of one should have known better and couldn’t really remember why the incident had started.
There were two other people at the scene, he said.
