Drunken teen (19) said gardai were 'idiots'

A TEENAGER who called gardai "idiots" and "d*ckheads" had too much to drink, a court heard.

Luke Cladingboel (19) had just come out of the pub when he made the remarks.

Judge David McHugh imposed the probation act.

The defendant, of Moorfield Drive in Clondalkin, admitted to threatening and abusive behaviour.

Garda Brian Geraghty told Blanchardstown court he was on Main Street in Blanchardstown on May 11 when he came across Mr Cladingboel.

Gda Geraghty said he became verbally abusive, calling them "idiots" and "d*ckheads".

Cladingboel later apologised for his behaviour.

Defence lawyer said the defendant, who recently sat the Leaving Certificate, had too much to drink.
