Christopher Haggan (19), of Cullybackey Road in Ballymena and Ronan Tierney (18), of Murob Park in the town, appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court for sentencing on a number of charges.

Haggan’s charges included possessing and tendering counterfeit Ulster Bank £20 notes on dates in January and February 2018; possession of a hurley bat as an offensive weapon at Glenariffe; assault and possession of cannabis.

Tierney’s charges included tendering counterfeit currency; assault; disorderly behaviour in Glenariff; possession of a hurley bat as an offensive weapon in Glenariffe and resisting a police officer in the execution of his duty.

A prosecutor said the youths had visited retail and licensed premises in Ballymena and the Glens and they were disorderly outside the Saffron Bar in Glenariffe.
The assault charge related to a female member of staff being put in fear of assault although she was not physically injured.

Both men were ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work.
