A Kildare resident allegedly caused criminal damage while heavily intoxicated in his home, and later began 'quoting Bible verses.'

That is according to gardaí present at Naas District Court on Thursday, May 5.

The defendant told the court that he pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage at his home, putting his partner in fear.

It was heard that the man smashed plates and threw his wife’s mobile phone, both of which constituted a breach of a protection order.

The judge ordered a probation report for the man, and adjourned the case for the report and sentencing on a date in July.
