‘Agitated’ Derry man passed out in police vehicle before being taken to hospital
23 Jul 2018
Derry Magistrate's Court sitting in Omagh heard this week how a local man was sitting near licensed premises in Waterloo Street shouting abuse and a crowd became 'agitated'. Gary Scott (25) of Glenside Park in Derry admitted a charge of disorderly behaviour on May 19. The court heard that Scott was sitting on the ground shouting at people passing by. He continued to shout and the crowd in the street were becoming agitated. Police tried to move him on unsuccessfully and they noticed a strong smell of alcohol. He was eventually helped to his feet and was 'very unstable'. Scott was taken to a police vehicle and then passed out and had to be taken to hospital. Deputy District Judge Liam Mc Stay said given the nature of Scott's record he would need a pre-sentence report. The case was adjourned until September 7.
