Man in court on rioting charge has bail revoked

A man accused of rioting in Derry in July has been remanded in custody after he appeared at the city’s Magistrates Court charged with breaching his bail.

Seamus Bradley (43), of Moss Park, was charged in connection with rioting in the Glengalliagh Road area of the city on July 28.

A police officer told the court that during rioting police set up a cordon of Land Rovers and Bradley was alleged to have thrown objects at the vehicles.

He then went back into the crowd only to re-emerge later when police grabbed him.

The officer said Bradley struggled with police but eventually was placed in the back of a Land Rover where he continued to strike out and gave false details.

The officer said that during interview Bradley had said he had been drinking on the night and become involved in the disorder but couldn't remember throwing anything.

The police officer said it was Bradley's third breach of bail and gave details of how he was in breach of his curfew on October 6.

She said he had been in breach on August 20 and August 30, too.

District Judge Barney McElholm revoked bail and remanded Bradley in custody to appear again on October 11.
