Gray admitted using disorderly behaviour at Orkney Drive on September 20, when he appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court.

But he denies a number of charges relating to an alleged incident at North Road on November 1, when he is accused of causing criminal damage to a fence; disorderly behaviour; two counts of assaults on police; and resisting police.
