Custody for teen litterbug
A TEENAGE litterbug who attacked a man for taking pictures of him when he threw a McDonald's paper wrapper from a car has been detained for eight months.
The 17-year-old boy, who had been under a threat connected to a feud at the time of the incident, had pleaded guilty at the Children's Court to assaulting the man and a breach of the peace, at Tyrconnell Road, in Dublin 8, on January 30 last year.
He had also admitted a criminal damage charge at Galtymore Park, in Drimnagh, in south Dublin on June 25.
Yesterday, Judge Ann Ryan imposed two consecutive four-month sentences in relation to both incidents.
