Screamed at nurses in A&E

A Ballykelly man who screamed at nurses in Coleraine hospital as they tried to treat his head injury was jailed for five months at Derry Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

The court heard Michael McDermott (24) of Dukes Lane had also breached his bail conditions by consuming alcohol, entering Limavady and breaking his curfew.

Police had found McDermott in the rear of a car on December 20 last year, with a head injury believed to be as the result of an assault.

The five month prison sentence was issued as presiding judge Paul Connolly invoked a previous suspended sentence hanging over McDermott.
