Man faces trial accused of assaulting bouncer at pub

A DUBLIN man has been sent for trial accused of breaking a pub security manager's tooth with a punch when he was refused entry.

Niall McGlynn (30) is also accused of assaulting three gardai, injuring one of them when they arrested him.

He had a book of evidence served on him at Dublin District Court.

Mr McGlynn, of Castlefarm, Swords, is charged with two counts of assault causing harm and two of common assault on January 27, 2012.

The offences are alleged to have happened at Charles Street West, Dublin 7, North King Street and Pearse Street Garda Station.

Judge Michael Walsh gave the defendant the formal warning that he must provide to the prosecution within 14 days details of any alibi he intends to rely on. He then returned him for trial to Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Previously, the court heard it was alleged the accused was refused entry to a pub and hit the security manager in the face and fled.

Gardai came across him and arrested him.

He was placed in a patrol car, where he allegedly kicked the driver in the head and spat in the other garda's face.

He also allegedly threw a punch and hit one of the officers in the face.
