Tom Tuite

A 14-YEAR-OLD Dublin boy, who drank two litres of vodka before he allegedly attacked a garda, has been re-admitted to bail.

The youngster, who has been linked to 30 other offences since December, had spent the past three weeks in custody.

Yesterday at the Dublin Children's Court, he was re-admitted to bail with strict conditions.

Judge Michael Coghlan was told it had been recommended the boy must agree to be drug tested. This was a condition of his bail.

The boy has been charged with throwing missiles, criminal damage to a garda car, breach of the peace and being intoxicated in public.

He also faces connected charges for violent behaviour in a garda station and assaulting an officer there.
