A probation report has been ordered in the case of a 20 year old Tullamore man who screamed at Gardai and told them to f*** off.

Corey Lloyd of 33 Arden View, Tullamore was seen falling against a window on William Street at 1.35am on New Year’s day this year.

He was very drunk and became very abusive to the Gardai who approached him, screaming at them to leave him alone. He has received an adult caution for similar public order offences in 2010, and solicitor Audrey Barrett said her client had been aggrieved on the night because he’d been assaulted earlier.

He accepts his behaviour was out of line and that he was extremely intoxicated,.

His father, whom he lives with, is keeping an eye on him, and Mr Lloyd told the court he is trying to deal with his son’s drinking problem.

Ms Barrett said the young man won’t be out drinking to that extent again, and is not a regular drinker.

A probation report is due before the court on September 19.
