A MAN HAS been charged after three men were stabbed during an incident outside a pub in Co Antrim on Saturday.

Nicholas Warner (31) from Summerville in South Carolina walked into court today with the aid of crutches, after having allegedly broken his leg in the incident, BBC reports. 

The incident happened in the early hours of Saturday morning on the Main Street in Ballycarry.

Three men, two aged in their 30s and one aged in his 60s, sustained stab wounds to their body.

Warner’s lawyer told the court that he will argue that Warner acted in self-defence.

Detectives have now charged the 31-year-old American with three counts of attempted murder, affray, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possessing an article with a blade or point in a public place.

Warner, who appeared before Limavady Magistrates Court alongside his wife, was due to return to the US today after spending his honeymoon in Northern Ireland.

After he was ordered to surrender his passport, Warner was released on bail and is due to appear in court next month.
