ColeraineCourt9 - Edited

A man accused of throwing a pool ball, and shouting verbal abuse at police and local residents, during a July 12 parade this year has had his case further adjourned.

Matthew William James McNeill (33), of Orby Drive in Liscolman, is charged with ‘doing a provocative act’ with intent to provoke a breach of the peace or by which a breach of the peace or public disorder was likely to be occasioned.

The case was mentioned at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday October 15.

The matter was adjourned to November 5.

A prosecutor previously said an alleged incident was “captured on footage” during a parade.

The location of the alleged incident was not given in court.

Also at a previous hearing in September, District Judge Peter King noted there had been a police bail condition ordering the defendant not to be in the vicinity of any band parade.

The judge had released the defendant on £500 bail and said that with the “marching season” over he hoped the temptation for the defendant to attend parades had passed.
