A man has been ordered to take an anger management course after he beat another man with a baseball bat outside Dun Laoghaire Garda station in Dublin.
Corey Plunkett of Smyths Villas, York Road chased his victim as he went to report him to Gardaí in May of last year.
The court heard how, on May 21 2012, the victim had decided to make a complaint after Corey Plunkett dangerously pulled his bike out in front of him earlier in the day.
His girlfriend decided to go with him and on their way to the Garda station, they noticed Corey Plunkett and his father following them while laughing and making gestures.
Upon arrival, the two men jumped out of their car armed with a baseball bat and a snooker cue and smashed in the couple’s car windows.
The victim made a dash for the station and 19-year-old Corey gave chase, swinging the bat at his head and breaking his arm as he tried to protect himself.
Officers inside the station saw everything and arrested the father and son.
Corey was handed down a three year jail sentence today but it was suspended on condition he take an anger management course.
His father, 45-year-old Stephen Plunkett, was also in court today where he pleaded guilty to his involvement. He is due to be sentenced in October.
