Kirsty Munro, Highfield Gardens, Banbridge, was fined £100 last Thursday at the local magistrates’ court for disorderly behaviour on October 15 this year. She was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that shortly after 1am police saw Munro outside the Coach nightclub. She threw a number of punches at a man.

When police approached her she told them to ‘f—k off’ and used other derogatory terms before being arrested for disorderly behaviour.

A solicitor representing Munro said the last time she was before a court was seven years ago. He explained that the defendant had been out drinking. When leaving the club a male made unwanted advances to her and she lost her head.

The solicitor said she would apologise to the court for her behaviour.
