A Coleraine man who said he didn’t want to be treated in hospital by “some Paki b**stard doctor” has been given a five months jail term, suspended for two years.

Niall Samuel McIlmoyle (27), of Foundry Court, admitted a charge of being disorderly at Coleraine’s Causeway Hospital.

A prosecutor told Monday’s sitting of Coleraine Magistrates Court that at 9.45pm on Saturday September 29 last year police were called to a report of a “serious disturbance” at an address and 45 minutes later they saw Mcllmoyle on a bicycle at Brook Street in Coleraine.

He cycled onto Union Street without stopping and into the path of a Volkswagen Polo causing a collision which caused damage to the vehicle’s bumper.

McIlmoyle got back on his feet and ran off from police.

At 4am the next day police found the defendant at New Row in Coleraine and arrested him.

He required treatment and officers took him to hospital but at 6.10am he became aggressive and shouted: “I’m not f**king waiting here to be treated by some Paki b**tard doctor”.

He told police if he had to stay he would “go f**king mad and wreck the place”.

McIlmoyle had pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly behaviour and ‘dangerous cycling’.

Meanwhile, the defendant also pleaded guilty to making a threat to damage a woman’s property at 11pm on July 11 last year.

A woman had been in Coleraine town centre when the defendant, whom she knew, threatened to burn her out and petrol bomb her home.

A prosecutor said the woman was left “shaken and distressed”.

Defence barrister Stephen Law said a Restraining Order was in place and there had been no re-offending.

He accepted they were “nasty incidents”.

At a previous court the lawyer said the incidents came against the backdrop of McIlmoyle taking excess medication mixed with illegal substances and alcohol.

District Judge Peter King told Monday’s court the behaviour had been “disgraceful”.

He handed down a five months jail term, suspended for two years, and fined the defendant £150 for dangerous cycling.
