Police respond after around 100 motorists ‘engaged in antisocial behaviour’ in Portglenone

Police in Mid and East Antrim were tasked to the small rural village of Portglenone over the weekend after it was reported that a large number of motorists were engaged in antisocial behaviour in the area.

The gathering of young motorists in Portglenone has been causing problems for the local community for a number of months now, and recently the police along with colleagues in the Driver Vehicle Agency (DVA) conducted an operation in the village.

A spokesperson for the Police Service of Northern Ireland commented on the incident on Sunday night saying:

“At 10pm on Sunday night (27 February) we received a report of approximately 100 motorists engaged in antisocial behaviour in Portglenone.

“Local officers attended and using powers under the Road Traffic Order conducted a number of breath tests and inspected vehicles for defects.

“One male was arrested for disorderly behaviour and resisting police. A report is being prepared for the PPS to consider.”
