A Dublin teenager has been arrested following a massive incident of anti-social behaviour in the capital which saw members of the gardai reportedly verbally abused and threatened with coronavirus.  As many as 12 young teenagers were reported to have been causing the disturbance at Dun Laoghaire pier on Tuesday evening.

Gardai were called after the huge gang were allegedly spotted harassing members of the public and joking about having the ability to give them coronavirus. One eye-witness claimed to Dublin Live that when officers did arrive, they were verbally abused by the teens.
