A court has been told that “silly behaviour” led to a Lurgan man pleading guilty to a single count of resisting police.

The case of Patrick Wilson, (29), of Glenholme Park, was heard at Craigavon Courthouse sitting on Friday, April 29.

The court heard that on December 2 last year, police received a report regarding an incident in Lurgan.

Officers attended and whilst trying to arrest Wilson, he resisted by attempting to push the arresting officer.

Wilson was brought down to the ground in a controlled manner and continued to resist by kicking out and being handcuffed.

In his defence, the court was told that the offending was “silly behaviour” due to alcohol consumption and he has no other matters pending against him.

District Judge Bernie Kelly imposed a fine of £250.
