Ballymoney Train Station

A WOMAN has been charged with assaulting a Chief Inspector and a Sergeant at Ballymoney Train Station on the day a Royal Black Institution parade was being held in the town – Saturday August 31 this year.

Helen McNeill (38), of Kilmakevit Road in Cullybackey, is also charged with resisting the police sergeant in the execution of her duty.

A fourth allegation is that the defendant was disorderly at Ballymoney Train Station.

At Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday a prosecutor said there was bodyworn footage in the case.

A police officer said she believed she could connect the accused to the charges.

The officer told District Judge Peter King it had been reported to the PSNI that the defendant had been causing a disturbance at the Train Station on the day of the Royal Black event.

Defence solicitor Stewart Ballentine asked for the case to be adjourned for a week to obtain the instructions of the defendant.

The defendant was given bail of £500 with a condition that she is not to consume alcohol and the case was adjourned to September 30.
