Man resisted police officer in execution of his duty on St Patrick’s Day

Ballymena Court

A MAN with a Portglenone address who resisted a police officer in the execution of his duty at 12.30am on St Patrick’s Day this year has been given a five months jail term, suspended for a year.

William Dunlop (37), of West Road, appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court where his defence barrister was Michael Smyth.

The defendant was also also ordered to do 75 hours of unpaid work.

He was also banned from driving for three years for driving whilst disqualified in the area near McDonald’s in Ballymena and not being insured in September 2017.

The court heard the defendant had been banned from driving for four years in 2018 for another offence.

District Judge Nigel Broderick said Dunlop had a poor record.
