Fearghal Ó Snodaigh (24) became aggressive and heavily resisted arrest in a drunken episode at a north Dublin Garda station, a court heard.

Judge Ann Ryan described his behaviour as "utterly unacceptable", but said she would leave him without a criminal record if he takes part in a restorative justice programme.

Dublin South Central TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh and his wife Aisling Ní Dhálaigh were both in court to support their son, along with the accused's fiancée.

Aengus Ó Snodaigh ([ˈeːŋɡəsˠ o ː ˈsˠn̪ˠɔd̪ˠiː] born 31 July 1964) is an Irish Sinn Féin politician, author and historian who has been a Teachta Dála ( TD ) for the Dublin South-Central constituency since the 2002 general election.

Gardaí searched the accused and put him in the cell. He was charged and released into the custody of his father.

Sgt Beakey agreed with defence barrister Emer Ní Chúagáin that Ó Snodaigh, who had no prior convictions, was unlikely to come before the courts again.

The accused had €500 to donate to charity in court and gardaí nominated the stillbirth association Féileacáin.

The defence submitted documents setting out a "context" to the offences, which happened after a "difficult incident" which Ó Snodaigh was struggling to deal with.

Testimonials were also given to the court that "speak to the type of man that he is".

"He is genuinely very sorry about the incident," Ms Ní Chúagáin said, adding that it was "out of character".

The accused has a degree from DIT and is studying for a Masters in Trinity College. His thesis is due in June and he plans to go to the US on a graduate visa.

The garda and her partner Garda David Egan were looking for a boy who had gone missing. They had received a report tat the She imposed sentences totalling three years, which she suspended in full on strict conditions, including that he attend alcohol, offending behaviour and anger management work.

This is a list of longest prison sentences ever given to a single person, worldwide. Listed are instances where people have been sentenced to jail terms in excess of a human lifetime.

Ó Snodaigh had good employment prospects and criminal convictions would have a detrimental effect on that, Ms Ní Chúagáin said.

Judge Ryan said engaging with restorative justice would give the accused time to reflect on his behaviour.

She said she would strike the charges out if a report from the programme is positive, and adjourned the case to next February.
