Son of SF's O Snodaigh has his garda assault case adjourned
A TD's son who is accused of assaulting a garda has had his case further adjourned as his defence lawyers continue to enquire about the possibility of an adult caution.
Fearghal Ó Snodaigh (23), son of Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh, is alleged to have become threatening before resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.
Judge Eirinn McKiernan adjourned his case for four weeks in Dublin District Court.
Mr Ó Snodaigh, of Naas Road, Dublin 8, is accused of assaulting Gda Niall Carolan, at Ballymun garda station. The offence is alleged to have happened on February 28 last year.
Mr Ó Snodaigh is further charged with obstructing Gda Carolan and using threatening, abusive and insulting words or behaviour.
Yesterday's appearance was Mr Ó Snodaigh's third in relation to the case.
The defence said enquiries were being made about the administration of an adult caution. Judge McKiernan adjourned the case to a date next month.
The accused has not yet entered any pleas.
