A one-year probation order was imposed at Londonderry Magistrates’ Court on a man charged with public order offending.
In court was Dylan O’Kane, of Rosemount Cottages.
The court heard that O’Kane’s mother had called the police in the early hours of June 28, after he had caused a disturbance at the family home.
Police found O’Kane bare chested on Creggan Road and when they tried to restrain him he lashed out, striking one of the officers.
Imposing sentence District Judge Barney McElholm ordered O’Kane to attend for alcohol treatment.
