Court case
Court case

A student who shouted expletives at a number of women during a night out in Cookstown to celebrate his A-level results has received a £200 fine.

Aaron Trainor, 18 was reported to police after he shouted abuse at a number of women in a restaurant on August 16.

Police warned him to desist but later received a report that he had shouted”b***h” at another woman. When police approached him he began another tirade of abuse in the direction of a female police officer, following her across the road to another fracas before continuing to shout at her.

He was subsequently arrested and had to be restrained. His abusive shouting continued right through to the morning.

Handing down a fine of £200, District Judge Norman Bates said that the defendant’s “euphoria turned into disorder against females”. He said that the behaviour of the defendant, who is from Portadown, was out of character. A £15 court levy was also imposed.
