He locked the door and remained inside after becoming involved in a dispute.When the case was called at Limerick District Court last week, Judge Eugene O’Kelly was told that the State wished to withdraw the charges and sought to have the case struck out.The case was dismissed and Mr Browne was released from his bail.
