Man arrested hours after release

A prolific criminal with 61 previous convictions who was released on High Court bail last Thursday, was remanded in custody when he appeared before the Magistrates Court in Londonderry charged with committing five further offences just hours after his release.

James Donegan (25) from Carnhill, is charged with escaping from police custody, assaulting two police officers, damaging a pair of police issue trousers and resisting an officer.

He was arrested at his home on Monday night and is alleged to have committed the offences last Thursday night.

There was no bail application and he was remanded in custody until October 31.
