A MAN accused of being disorderly in a “public place” on New Year’s Day is contesting the charge.
David Stephen McCloskey (59), of Union Street, Coleraine, is accused in relation to Union Street on January 1 this year.
At Coleraine Magistrates Court on January 27, defence solicitor Garrett Greene said there was footage available and the contested issue was whether it was a public area.
The lawyer said the defendant did not go onto the pavement during the incident.
The case has been adjourned to mid-February.
