Kildare man allegedly defecated on garda station cell floor

Naas Courthouse

The case of a man who allegedly caused criminal damage to a cell has been adjourned until May.

Alan Dowling, 33, with an address listed as Newtown, Nurney appeared before Naas District Court on Thursday, March 28.

The court heard that on March 14, 2019 at Bishopsland, Kildare, Mr Dowling was allegedly observed knocking over wheelie bins outside a house.

Sgt Brian Jacob said the defendant was very aggressive, shouting and screaming. Mr Dowling was brought to Kildare Garda Station and charged with public order.

Sgt Jacob said Mr Dowling then allegedly defecated on the floor of the cell, and smeared excrement all over the wall. Judge Desmond Zaidan adjourned the case until May 16, 2019 for hearing.
