‘Her feet left the ground’ – Tourist swung screaming girlfriend by her hair during drunken attack outside Garda train station, court said


A TOURIST swung his girlfriend off the ground by the hair during a drunken attack outside a Dublin Garda station, a court has heard.

Ewis Good, 28, of Bron Y Waun, Chirk, Wrexham, in Wales, was sentenced to 60 days in prison.

He pleaded guilty in Dublin District Court to a number of charges stemming from his first night of a two-day city break.

Judge John King was told that the Store Street Gardaí heard a “woman screaming right outside the door of the station” in the early hours of Saturday.

They saw the accused and his girlfriend at the Busaras taxi rank.

“As the man screamed, he grabbed her hair with both hands and swung the woman around,” the court heard.

The judge also heard that “her feet left the ground.”

Two gardaí ran out and caught Good as he “stumbled away”. He was found to have “a very strong smell of alcohol”.

He refused to reveal his identity and was taken to the police station, where he became abusive and still refused to give his name or address.

He called gardaí “scumbags” and “c***s”, threatened to headbutt them and stepped out before being put in a cell.

The court granted him legal aid.

The judge noted that Good’s friend, who declined to comment on the victim’s effects, had no visible injuries.

Good pleaded guilty to assault, violent behavior in a Garda station, threatening and abusive behavior, and being intoxicated in public and refused to give his name.

Attorney Conor McGreevy pleaded for leniency and asked the judge to indicate that the defendant had no criminal record.

He said Good arrived in Dublin on Friday and had started drinking “very heavily”. However, he apologized “profoundly” to Gardaí and his partner. The court found that he worked full-time and was permanently resident with his family in the UK.

The attorney asked the judge to take note of the early guilty plea and how Good was handling the case.

The attack was under Section 2 of the Non-Fatal Offenses Against Person Act for an attack that did not result in bodily harm. It carries a maximum sentence of six months.

Judge King imposed a 60-day sentence on that charge; the other offenses were taken into account.

Judge King set acknowledgments if Good were appealed, posting his €1,000 bail with a €500 cash deposit. ‘Her feet left the ground’ – Tourist swung screaming girlfriend by her hair during drunken attack outside Garda train station, court said
