Man is accused of having knife at Ballymena pub at Halloween

A Ballymena man accused of possessing an offensive weapon – a knife – at a pub in the town at Halloween last year has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

John Crabbe (24), of Ballyloughan Park, also denies a similar charge of possessing a knife in a public place – The Grouse – without good reason regarding the same date.

At Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday, where the defence solicitor was David McIlrath, the case was adjourned to June 6 to fix a date for a contest.
