Court hears woman stood in middle of a Ballymena street and blocked traffic

A WOMAN who stood in the middle of William Street in Ballymena and blocked traffic then began shouting and swearing at police and passers-by including children, the town's Magistrates Court heard.

Marlene O'Boyle (44), of Lisles Hill Road near Glenarm, committed offences on June 8 this year.

A prosecutor said police had given the defendant chances to moderate her behaviour but she refused and during a struggle kicked out at a police officer.

The case was adjourned to September 16 for a pre-sentence report.
