Man who told bouncers ‘I’ll kill you all’ needs ‘a little bit of direction’, court told

first_imgA Letterkenny man, who struck a bouncer and told a nightclub security staff ‘I’ll kill you all’, has been told that he needs ‘a little bit of direction’.In a separate incident, Denis Bonner, of Fairgreen Park, attempted to gain access to his next door neighbour’s house, believing himself to be at his own home after ‘losing his bearings’ due to the ‘recklessness of alcohol intake’. Gardai were called to Fairgreen Park at 11pm on February 28, 2016.“The defendant arrived at a public place and attempted to enter the premises,” Inspector Barry Doyle told Letterkenny District Court.“He started hitting the front door and the windows. He then moved to the back of the house, repeated the banging and shouting. He applied force to the back door and when Gardai arrived he failed to comply.”Mr Bonner caused €158.90 worth of damage to a door at the property.On February 26, 2017, Garda Moyles observed Bonner being ejected from Voodoo by security staff.“When they released a grip of Bonner, Garda Moyles saw him strike a member of the security staff with a closed fist, aggressively, to the face,” Inspector Barry Doyle told Letterkenny District Court.The Court heard that, as the Garda approached, Bonner shouted: ‘You shower of f***** b*******, let me go. I’ll kill you all’.Bonner remained argumentative and aggressive when apprehended.Solicitor for Bonner, Frank Dorrian, said his client was a 27year-old who had ‘cleaned up considerably’ having been before the court in his late teens.“He lost his bearings, was in the correct place bar one number,” Mr Dorrian said.“He believed that he was at home, but in failing to gain admission he thought that he was being made fun of. The recklessness of his alcohol intake drove the whole project, but he regrets and apologises for his actions.“The public order offence came as a surprise, such was his intake. He was unaware that he had struck anyone, but he acknowledges that it was he and he is responsible.“He is a very reasonable young man after from his alcohol intake. He left school at 15 and has worked on and off, but consistently, since then.”Judge Paul Kelly said he would strike out the criminal damage charge if money was paid in court and Bonner lodged €160 with court staff.“In view of the previous convictions, this man needs a little bit of direction regarding his drink problem,” Judge Kelly said.Judge Kelly said he was going to ask the probation service to examine the possibility of community service and the case was adjourned until the November 6 sitting.Man who told bouncers ‘I’ll kill you all’ needs ‘a little bit of direction’, court told was last modified: September 8th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare 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:Denis BonnerFRank DorrianJudge Paul KellyletterkennyLetterkenny District Courtlast_img read more
