Police received report of male 'running round with no top and on and possibly with blood on his body' in Larne

POLICE received a report of a male "running round Carson Street in Larne with no top on and possibly with blood on his body" at 11.50pm on January 17 this year.

Ryan Adair (19), who had a previously clear record, was spotted at the top floor window of a property when police arrived. He had no Tee shirt on.

He was throwing objects in the room and was shouting.

The landlord arrived after receiving reports from neighbours and asked for the defendant to be removed.

The landlord noticed damage to blinds; dents to a ceiling and a wall; and a broken plug socket.

Adair headbutted a police officer in the face but there was "no lasting injury," a prosecutor said.

On October 23 last year Adair had kicked out and struck a police officer on his thigh but there were "no lasting injuries," the prosecutor said.

The defendant had pleaded guilty to assaulting police and causing criminal damage to fixtures and fittings at Carson Street and a police cell van.

A defence lawyer said the defendant had spent some time in prison on remand.

The defendant, with addresses listed on charge sheets as Glenvale Park in Glynn and Shanes Hill Road in Kilwaughter, was put on Probation for a year with conditions that he participates in any programme and attends any addiction treatment programme.
