Gavin Lyons (22), pictured right, of 40 Chambersland Close, is charged with one count of threatening to kill a garda at New Ross Garda Station on January 2; unauthorised taking of an MPV at Chambersland Close on March 14; six counts of dangerous driving at Chambersland Close, the quay, New Ross, Barrack Lane; Hospital Road, Butlersland, and Knockmullen and Camblin in mid-March; and one count of driving while disqualified, driving without insurance and driving without a licence.

At the hearing Supt Jim Doyle objected to bail and after lengthy legal argument, Judge Gerard Haughton set bail at €300 with an independent surety of €1,500, with a cash element of €1,000.

Judge Haughton set conditions, including that Lyons stay indoors from 9 pm to 8 am at 40 Chambersland Close. Lyons must also sign on twice daily.

The judge adjourned the case to this Thursday.
