Newtownabbey man pleads guilty to assaulting a paramedic near Portrush

A man has pleaded guilty to assaulting a paramedic who was treating him in the back of an ambulance near Portrush.

Gary Boyd (31), of Ballyfore Gardens, Newtownabbey, appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Friday and admitted charges of assaulting an ambulance worker and being disorderly at Ballybogey Road near Portrush.

A defence lawyer said his client has a relevant record and asked for the case to be adjourned until the end of January to allow a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

The alleged incident happened on July 3 this year and further details of the incident have yet to be outlined to the court.
