GARDAÍ were called to a Cork city centre disturbance after midnight where a man who was prevented from going into a pub got abusive and threatening.
The case against 48-year-old Jason Rosboro who lives at an apartment at 120 Lower Glanmire Road, Cork, was listed for hearing yesterday at Cork District Court.
Defence solicitor, Pat Horan, said the defendant was not present for the case against him.
Judge Con O’Leary said the case could proceed in his absence.
Garda Derry O’Brien testified that gardaí arrived at the scene after midnight on May 6, 2019, at North Main Street, Cork, and found the accused man engaged in a disturbance.
“Jason Rosboro was intoxicated. He was abusive and aggressive to gardaí. He was arrested and taken to the Bridewell garda station.
“He was aggressive and abusive as soon as we exited the patrol car,” Garda O’Brien said.
Inspector Seán McCarthy asked the guard to outline the nature of the verbal abuse.
Garda O’Brien said Rosboro told them to f*** off and called them pr***s.
Garda O’Brien said, “He remained like that until he was arrested and taken to the station.”
Mr Horan said, “It arose out of security staff in a public house. There was some problem there.
“There was some interaction between those people and himself.”
Garda O’Brien agreed that this was so but said that as soon as gardaí got out of the car the accused turned his aggression on them.
Mr Horan said, “He has been out of trouble for quite a few years.”
Judge Con O’Leary imposed a two-month jail term on the defendant on the threatening charge but suspended it on condition that he would keep the peace.
A €100 fine was imposed on him for being drunk and a source of danger on the occasion.
