Court hears Derry man shouted 'No Surrender' while urinating inside police vehicle after being arrested

District Judge Barney McElholm said there was 'a nasty sectarian element' to the case of a man who admitted being disorderly in the vicinity of Ebrington Square. Neville Wray (43) of Spencer Road in Derry admitted being disorderly on April 13. He also admitted a charge of indecent behaviour and criminal damage on the same date. The court was told police were called to an incident in the Ebrington Square area and came across Wray causing a disturbance. He was warned about his behaviour and was then arrested and while in the police van he urinated and shouted 'no surrender.' Defence solicitor Seamus Quigley told the court that his client had taken steps to tackle his drinking. He accepted there was a sectarian element but added that the court had 'seen worse examples.' Wray was sentenced to four months suspended for two years, fined £150 and ordered to pay £150 in compensation to the PSNI.
