Man who repeated 999 calls banned from buying booze

A man who made repeated 999 calls to complain he’d been thrown out of a nightclub has been banned from buying booze.

Brendan Gilardoni of James Street in Douglas appeared before Deputy High Bailiff James Brooks at Douglas Courthouse.

He admitted one count each of resisting police and making nuisance phone calls on April 18.

Prosecutor Hazel Carroon told the hearing the 22 year old dialled 999 at 3.30am to complain he’d been asked to leave 1886 in Regent Street in Douglas.

He was arrested after making repeated calls despite being warned by officers, and shouted foul-mouthed abuse at operators in the Emergency Services Joint Control Room.

Gilardoni tried to barricade himself into a room at his mother’s house when police arrived, and had to be subdued with incapacitant spray before being taken into custody.

Mr Brooks placed him on probation for 12 months and banned him from buying or being sold alcohol for six months.

Gilardoni was also ordered to pay £125 costs.
