Reveller 'crude and insulting to women'

A LOGISTICS worker who drunkenly shouted insults at women outside a Dublin pub has been told to pay €200 to charity to avoid conviction.

Jorge Arlandis (39) had the case against him adjourned when he admitted public order offences at Dublin District Court.

Arlandis, with an address at Bremore Pastures Crescent, Balbriggan, pleaded guilty to public intoxication and threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour.

Sgt Zita Woods told the court gardai were called to South William Street at midnight on the date in question.

COMMENTS

The accused was being threatening to staff outside the Dakota bar and making "crude and insulting comments to passing women".

Arlandis had written a letter of apology to the gardai, his solicitor Peter Connolly said.

On the night, he had been out with his girlfriend and had consumed too much alcohol.

The court heard the accused's profession was in logistics but he was not working at the moment and was in "fairly straitened circumstances".

Judge Michael Walsh adjourned the case to a date in July for payment of the donation to the Capuchin Friary.

He said if this was done he would give the defendant the benefit of the Probation Act.
