Drunken man was abusive to the police

A Lurgan man was given 80 hours community service last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.

Forty five year old Paul White, Malcolm Road, Lurgan, admitted disorderly behaviour at Broomhill Grove in Lurgan on July 26.

When police arrived at the scene they saw White who appeared to be intoxicated at the house of his ex-wife. He was abusive to police on a number of occasions.

District Judge, Mr Mervyn Bates, said community service was appropriate.
