Moville man toppled rickshaw after lift refusal 22.02.12

A 24 year old Moville man has been ordered to make a charity donation after toppling a rickshaw in Dublin's Harcourt Terrace.
Robert Kane, St Finian's Park, Moville, admitted the offence on November 18, last at 3am. The defendant attended Carndonagh District Court on foot of a bench warrant on Tuesday after he failed to turn up at an earlier hearing in Dublin. The local court was told that he and a work colleague got "very drunk" after finishing a six-week job in the capital. They tried to get a lift home to their accommodation but the rickshaw driver refused. The defendant, who is currently unemployed, told the court it was his work mate who knocked over the tourist vehicle. Judge Paul Kelly told him he would escape conviction if he paid 100 to the St Vincent de Paul Society by April 17.
