Teen held over rammed garda

A 15-YEAR-OLD boy accused of dangerous driving causing serious bodily harm to a woman garda on Halloween night was refused bail.

Garda Linda Bury and a colleague were dealing with an incident on Blackditch Road, in Ballyfermot, Dublin, when their patrol car was rammed by another vehicle.

A 4x4 crashed into them pinning Garda Bury to a wall. She was taken to St James's Hospital with leg injuries.

The teenager appeared at Dublin Children's Court yesterday.

An additional charge for reckless endangerment of life was brought. He was remanded him in custody to appear again next week.
