Inspector David Murphy told Letterkenny District Court that McBride was aggressive and abusive to officers, assaulting another man during the altercation.He said McBride had 22 previous convictions, four of them for assault.Defence solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client had been out until the early hours of the morning and had been drinking.“Drink doesn’t do well with him,” said the solicitor, who pleaded for leniency in the case.But Judge Paul Kelly told the court: “This man has four previous assault convictions for which he was treated very leniently. He hasn’t got the message about this sort of behaviour.“He has run out of rope as far as I’m concerned.”Judge Kelly jailed McBride for three months for the Section 3 assault.He also fined him €200 for being drunk and disorderly.JUDGE JAILS DONEGAL MAN OVER FOUR LANTERNS ATTACK was last modified: December 10th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaultBernard McBridedonegalFour LanternsjailLetterkenny CourtmcbrideMilfordlast_img
