A young farm worker has been fined by police after admitting driving around a city centre in a tractor ’looking for women’.
Anthony Breslin, 18, from Burnfoot, was caught driving his tractor around Londonderry on August 16.
He admitted one charge of driving a tractor without displaying L-plates.
Breslin’s solicitor said: "We all know tractors are all about pulling power, but this is taking it to the extreme."
He said his client’s father had "sent him out looking for cattle and he’d done that but then took the head staggers and came to Derry on the tractor looking for women".
When the youngster was stopped by police he claimed he was using it for ’social reasons rather than for agricultural reasons’.
He added that he was driving around the city centre ’to see if there were any women about’.
The district judge, Barney McElholm, described Breslin as a "Don Juan".
"I was going to say Derry Juan but that is not quite correct," he added.
Breslin was fined £50.
