Irish pop star Brian McFadden launched a scathing attack on the Irish courts system after his careless driving hearing was adjourned.

The former WESTLIFE singer, 24, was due to face charges from an alleged incident on Ireland's M1 motorway in September 2002 at a Dublin court on Thursday (28OCT04).

The REAL TO ME hitmaker was furious when the case was adjourned for the second time, after one of the police officers involved had called in sick.

Outside the court, McFadden ranted, "It's a joke. If these people actually want to do something, then do it."

McFadden told authorities he wouldn't be able to reschedule another hearing because he would be on tour for the next six months.
