Watch out... radio active man!
RIOT police had to be called to a court hearing yesterday after a murder accused arrived naked.
He later appeared before a judge wearing only an oversized t-shirt.
The riot gardai were deployed to Cloverhill District Court in Dublin for a bail appearance by Warren Dumbrell who, along with his brother, is charged with murder.
Members of the public had to evacuate the courthouse after an altercation at Cloverhill prison where Dumbrell has been in custody awaiting trial.
Officers with riot helmets, bullet-proof vests and batons cleared the courthouse, home to the High Court bail list each Monday, and asked the public to vacate the building.
Earlier this month, Dumbrell (32) and his brother Jeffrey (26) were charged with the murder of a father-of-six near his home in a Dublin flats complex.
Last night, the Irish Prison Service confirmed that Dumbrell, who was refused bail by Judge Butler, was transferred to Cork prison as punishment for the disturbance at Cloverhill.
Dumbrell was due to attend a bail hearing yesterday afternoon at the nearby courthouse but prior to his removal a major row broke out at the remand facility.
It is understood that Dumbrell refused to dress himself for his court appearance and was brought to the courthouse naked before being clothed in an oversized t-shirt.
Earlier this month the Dumbrell brothers, both of Emmett Road in Inchicore, Dublin, were charged with murdering Christopher Cawley near his home at Tyrone Place in Inchicore."
The riot police? So what were they worried about exacatly, concealed weapons? That he might get a stiffy and baton charge them? Radioactive farts? Did he have a laser in his winkle? Lethal exploding dingleberries? The public demands to know!
