A DEFENCE lawyer for a man who was disorderly in Portrush said his client had taken a “double dose” of medication and then had alcohol.

Stephen McClelland (31), admitted being disorderly at Eglinton Street and obstructing a police officer on August 8 this year.

Defence barrister Stephen Law said the defendant is in custody on remand in relation to other pending matters.

A prosecutor said the defendant was shouting and had repeatedly swore at police and after being arrested on August 8 he refused to provide his details but later apologised when interviewed.

Mr Law said the defendant had taken double his dose of prescribed medication “and tried to wash it down with alcohol”.

He said the defendant was arrested because police felt criminal damage had been caused at a rented property.

He said the defendant had not been charged with criminal damage.

“Another party was in the house,” added the defence lawyer.

The defendant, from Belfast, was fined £250.
