A MAN who smashed a garage window, a side door and a car window has paid €2,000 compensation in Tallaght Court.

Judge John Coughlan also fined Mindaugas Ramauskas €800.

Garda Donal O'Sullivan told the court that on the above date he responded to a call that a man had kicked in a side door, a garage window and the window of a car. Garda O'Sullivan said Ramauskas was intoxicated.

In response to the judge, Garda O'Sullivan said Ramauskas had no previous convictions.

Judge Coughlan told Mr Breen: "I'll take that off him".

Mr Breen said Ramauskas had been in Ireland since 2006.

Ordering that €2,000 compensation be paid, Judge Coughlan fined Ramauskas €800.
