A man who said he didn't want to be treated in hospital by a "P***" doctor has been given a five-month jail term, suspended for two years.

Niall Samuel McIlmoyle (27), of Foundry Court in Coleraine, admitted a charge of being disorderly at the Causeway Hospital.

A prosecutor told Coleraine Magistrates Court that at 9.45pm on Saturday, September 29, last year police were called to a report of a "serious disturbance" at an address and 45 minutes later they saw Mcllmoyle on a bicycle at Brook Street in the town.

Mcllmoyle cycled on to Union Street without stopping and into the path of a Volkswagen Polo, causing a collision which damaged the vehicle's bumper.

McIlmoyle got back on his feet and ran off from police.

At 4am the following day police found the defendant at New Row in Coleraine and arrested him.

He required treatment and officers took him to hospital but at 6.10am he became aggressive and shouted: "I'm not f****** waiting here to be treated by some P*** b****** doctor".

He told police if he had to stay he would "go f****** mad and wreck the place".

McIlmoyle had pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly behaviour and dangerous cycling.

Meanwhile, the defendant also pleaded guilty to making a threat to damage a woman's property at 11pm on July 11 last year.

A woman had been in Coleraine town centre when the defendant, whom she knew, threatened to burn her out and petrol bomb her home.

A prosecutor told the court the woman was left "shaken and distressed".

Defence barrister Stephen Law said a restraining order was in place and there had been no reoffending.

He accepted they were "nasty incidents".

At a previous court the lawyer said the incidents came against the backdrop of McIlmoyle taking excess medication mixed with illegal substances and alcohol.

District Judge Peter King told yesterday's court the behaviour had been "disgraceful".

The judge handed McIlmoyle down a five-month jail term, suspended for two years, and fined the defendant £150 for dangerous cycling.
