The couple say that at the entrance to an REM concert in Balbriggan in June 2005, MCD security staff emptied McCarrickâ€™s bag of drinks and medication on the ground and said the couple would be arrested for drug dealing.
â€œThey said I was a dealer because my bag was full of prescription drugs,â€? said McCarrick. â€œThey accused my fiancée of planning to inject drugs with her insulin needle. Iâ€™ve never before been harassed and embarrassed in front of other people like this.â€?
McCarrick said the security staff ignored the coupleâ€™s civil service identification cards and doctorsâ€™ letters that explained their need for medication.
