'Doolally' man refused bail on car charge.
A MAN who took antianxiety drugs following a punishment shooting was described in court yesterday as "doolally".
Harry Boyle was refused bail on a charge of interfering with a car in Derry on Thursday.
The court heard the 24-year-old had lost his memory for two days while taking Xanax on top of painkillers, a combination which his solicitor Seamus Quigley said sent him "doolally".
Boyle takes strong painkillers for injuries sustained in a punishment shooting, which were described by Mr Quigley as the worst he had seen.
The accused, of Galliagh Park, Derry, told police he had no recollection of the incident or of being in court on Wednesday to face other charges.
District Judge Barney McElholm was told Boyle had been on High Court bail when the alleged offence took place.
The accused was remanded in custody to appear again on September 7.
