A member of the public came to the assistance of a garda who ended up in a struggle with a 25 year old man who turned and ran away, after he showed him his badge and told him he was going to be searched, Dundalk district court was told last week.
Judge Eirinn McKiernan heard Elvijs Atraskevics with an address at Mourne View Hall, Dublin Road, Dundalk was seen acting suspiciously on the Dublin Road on August 19th last. The court heard the defendant had no previous convictions, no drugs were found, and he did not realise at first it was a garda.
