A man with 196 convictions was jailed after using a pool cue to damage a charity centre.
Liam Bradley (41), of no fixed abode, appeared at Londonderry Magistrates Court yesterday where he admitted two counts of criminal damage and one of assault on September 5.
The court was told that police were called to Foyle Haven in John Street where the warden told him that one of its users, Bradley, had used a pool cue to smash a light fitting and damage a wall causing £120 worth of damage.
Police located Bradley and arrested him and while being taken to the toilet he assaulted a civilian detention officer and was later seen urinating in his cell.
Deputy District Judge Brian Archer said that Bradley had a “horrendous criminal record”.
He told Bradley he was wasting his life and sentenced him to three months in prison.
