Dad had an argument with a “random passer-by” in front of Garda train station

A father-of-one had just left a Garda station when he got into a fight outside with a random passer-by and had to be arrested.

Jason O’Brien, 31, accidentally bumped into a man who refused to accept his apology and hit the accused before the argument escalated.

O’Brien was told by a judge he should have de-escalated the situation by walking away after being hit.

He was fined €200 by Dublin District Court.

O’Brien, a carpenter from Rathmullen Park, Drogheda, County Louth, pleaded guilty to threatening, abusive and abusive conduct.

Garda Sergeant Michelle Lynch said O’Brien was dead on April 13.

He had to be violently detained by Gardaí. O’Brien previously had a criminal record for public order offences.

Defense attorney Tara McLoughlin said outside of a Garda station is “one of the least intelligent places to commit a crime.”

O’Brien emerged from the station and collided with a random passer-by. The accused apologized, but the passer-by would not accept this and hit O’Brien.

It was a “random occurrence” and he tried to deal with it properly before being hit, Ms McLoughlin said.

Judge John Brennan said if you were going to pick a fight, “don’t do it outside of a Garda station.” However, he said the defendant had a degree of culpability as he did not “de-escalate” the situation by walking away. Dad had an argument with a “random passer-by” in front of Garda train station
