The Sergeant said Moloney was later detained by security, and she had no previous convictions.

Moloney’s solicitor, Simon Fleming, said his client is on a number of medications on a daily basis. He said Moloney suffers from depression. Mr Fleming said that one of the medications that Moloney takes is on “the heroin spectrum”.

 He added: “If it’s abused it can be fatal in small doses.”

Mr Fleming produced a list of the medications that his client is currently being prescribed and it was examined by Judge McHugh.

Judge McHugh said he would apply the Probation Act.
