County Antrim man is 'violent individual with anger management problems'

DISTRICT Judge Nigel Broderick described a Larne man as a "violent individual" with "anger management problems".

He was speaking at Ballymena Magistrates Court to Stephen Witherspoon (29), of Ballycraigy Ring, who had "snapped" a mobile phone worth over £500 during a "domestic" incident and on another occasion kicked a police officer "numerous times" on the leg and "groin area".

The defendant was given a five months prison term, suspended for two years, and ordered to pay £500 compensation.
