A MAN barred from McDonald’s Restaurant in Ballymena who entered the premises twice on the evening of July 19 this year then became disorderly when asked to leave.

Ballymena Magistrates Court, on November 8, was told David Surgenor (24), of Old Cullybackey Road, Cullybackey, was aggressive and abusive towards staff, asking one: “Have you got something to say to me?”

The defendant pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly behaviour.

Defence solicitor John McAtamney said it was “reprehensible behaviour” by his client who wished to apologise.

The court heard Surgenor had a “horrendous” record and the last two months in which he had been out of jail was the longest such period in the last five or six years.

Sentence was deferred until next May by District Judge Nigel Broderick who said that although the defendant was getting a “chance” if he re-offended he faced starting off with four months in prison.
