first_imgA Downings man who had not been inside a nightclub in 20 years was arrested for abusing Gardai.Manus McFadden, 41, had been out with former schoolfriends after playing a charity football match.The father-of-two drank too much and found himself outside the Empire Nightclub at 4am on December 29th last and could not get a taxi home. He approached a Garda patrol van and asked them for a lift home.However, the Gardai said they were busy but if he was still on the street in an hour they would bring him home.McFadden, of Corcknamurleog, then called the Gardai ‘gobs*****.’Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client rarely drank and remembered little about the night.Judge Paul Kelly said Gardai were not a taxi service and said McFadden responded in a childish way to what was a generous offer.He ordered McFadden to pay €100 to Carrigart Youth Club.MAN WHO HAD NOT BEEN IN NIGHTCLUB FOR 20 YEARS CALLED GARDAI ‘GOB******’ was last modified: January 14th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:DowningsGardaiJudge Paul KellyManus McFaddenlast_img read more
