IN A FLUSH Man who broke locks at Dublin public toilets ‘fancied himself as some kind of Robin Hood’

The defendant’s barrister told Swords District Court the incident happened during lockdown when the beach was busy and the queues for toilets were long so he “took matters into his own hands in what he saw as the public interest”.

A construction worker who damaged the locks on the public toilets at Skerries Harbour “fancied himself as some kind of Robin Hood”, a court has heard.

When confronted by gardaí at the scene, John Nesbitt (40) clenched his fists, pushed his chest out and told them to “get the f**k out of here”.

The defendant’s barrister told Swords District Court the incident happened during lockdown when the beach was busy and the queues for toilets were long so he “took matters into his own hands in what he saw as the public interest”.

Nesbitt, with an address at Quay Street, Balbriggan, pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal damage and engaging in threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour at Harbour Road, Skerries on June 6 last.

He also admitted being intoxicated in a public place.

Judge John O’Leary convicted Nesbitt and sentenced him to one month in prison.

Sergeant Patricia McGarrity said on the date in question gardaí received reports about a male breaking the locks of the public toilets at the harbour.

The toilets had been locked by the council and when gardaí attended the scene they found the locks had been damaged and removed.

A number of members of the public identified John Nesbitt as the person responsible for the damage.

The accused became very aggressive to gardaí when they attempted to speak to him about what happened, Sgt McGarrity said, clenching his fists and pushing his chest out while telling them to “get the f**k out of here”.

Nesbitt was arrested and brought to Balbriggan Garda Station where he continued to be abusive.

The defendant has four previous convictions, the court heard.
