Republican conspiracy theories about the masonry attack during the Ardoyne riots that seriously injured a police officer entered the mainstream when Eamon Mallie blogged about it and persisted with it. The PSNI was clear on the situation with ACC McCausland stating:
"The individual that dropped the block on Samantha as she was advancing made off across the roof. That individual has been identified. Take it from me he can now sit and worry wherever he is in Northern Ireland. We will be coming for him.”
It appears they have done just that. An individual has now been charged with the attempted muder of the police officer.
