Motorist fled from police and ‘steered around band members
A motorist fled from police and “steered around” band members who were forming up in the middle of a road for a parade in Ballymena, a prosecutor told the town’s Magistrates Court.

The prosecutor said that on August 22 last year police were carrying out “point duties” surrounding a “Royal Black band parade”.The prosecutor said police then saw a car parked at the side of the road pointing towards the “parade”.The prosecutor said Adair then started driving towards police and the “parade”.The prosecutor said the police officer raised his right hand and signalled for Adair to stop as he was approaching the parade and the road was “now closed”.

” The prosecutor said Adair was asked, for a third time, to stop but refused and “laughed out the window” and drove on, “steering his vehicle around the band members who were already in the middle of the road forming up for the return parade”.He said Adair had a “negative attitude to the police”.
