Boy 'tried to ram garda car'

A DUBLIN youth is to stand trial accused of trying to ram a garda vehicle with a stolen car.

The Children's Court heard that the car had been stolen from Kilmartin Gardens, in Tallaght, Dublin, on January 2 last year.

It was alleged that the then 17-year-old boy led gardai on short chase during which he did a handbrake turn and aimed the stolen car at a garda vehicle. However he did not hit the gardai, Judge Ann Ryan was told.

The teenager, who has not yet entered a plea to the theft charge, was remanded to appear again in August.
