Boy (15) kicked garda in back during disturbance

A 15-YEAR-OLD Dublin boy has been accused of kicking a garda in the back as he was trying to arrest another person.

Gardaí had been trying to arrest a man on New Year's Day during a "large public order incident" in north Dublin when the boy allegedly intervened.



Dublin Children's Court was told that the boy was observed "run from the crowd and kick a garda in the back and run from the scene".



Garda Aidan O'Halloran, from Blanchardstown station, told Judge Aingeal Ni Chonduin that the boy was aggressive when he was arrested.



The teenager, who was accompanied to his hearing by his mother, is charged with assaulting Garda Conor O'Byrne, obstructing gardaí and breach of the peace.



His mother said that she was making efforts to get her son onto a training course which the judge said was "better than him hanging around". Legal aid was granted and the boy who was remanded on bail to appear again next month when he will be expected to enter pleas to the charges.
