A Stradbally man who got abusive when the gardaí were seizing his brother’s car was last week given the chance to make a donation to the Garda Benevolent Fund.

Jason Molloy, 6 Oak Glen, Stradbally, was charged with threatening or abusive behaviour, at the Timahoe Road on November 8 last year.

Inspector Aidan Farrelly gave evidence that the gardaí were seizing a car from Molloy’s brother when Molloy became abusive.

Molloy had previous convictions, mostly for road traffic offences.

Defence, Ms Josephine Fitzpatrick said Molloy “took umbrage” when the car was being seized.

The matter was adjourned to March 5, for Molloy to donate €100 to the Garda Benevolent Fund.
