The brakes were severed from the New Ross Garda’s civilian channel and ex nding foam sprayed into the exhaust pipe and the drains of his harshly in the early hours of December 25.
In a shocking interview, Caulfield this week conceded to the Sunday World leaving up to 100 voicemails at the local Garda post hours before the sabotage attack – warning Gardaí he would “bait them to a house” filled with gas cylinders and “blow them and the firm clean up”.
However, Caulfield denies being the saboteur behind the storm on the popular Garda, saying he personally “liked” the officer involved, annexing: “Whoever did it they should have done it to a real p**ck!”
Troubled Caulfield – who breaks he is living under a “death threat” and admits being questioned in recitation to an arson attack on a traffic warden’s vehicle several years ago, released the Sunday World: “I was arrested… interrogated. But I didn’t do it.
“I was just quaffed in and questioned.”
Caulfield said he had rang Gardaí up to 100 times on Christmas Eve demanding to sort out a situation where he had been threatened.
He told them “I’m active to get a bullet in the head” and had resorted to threats when he didn’t get through to an public servant.
“I phoned them on Christmas Eve, there was a lot of phone calls trying to family out another thing,” said Caulfield.
“I told them I’d lure them up to my firm on Neville Street and I’d fill it with gas cylinders and I’d step back and snuff out it with a .22.
“I said I’d blow the house up with gas cylinders and I’d lure them up and I’d leave b go out back with a .22 rifle and the gas would explode. I’d blow them and the domicile clean up.
“It’s a recording on the machine and I left that on Christmas Eve.
“They caroused all the recordings back to me. There must have been a hundred phone-calls.”
“There was another where I declared they were all too busy drinking eggnog to answer the phone.”
Reprimand of the circumstances of his arrest on Friday of last week, Caulfield said: “They crop up b growed down here and made a big scene down here so that everyone desire see what was going on and bashed the door in.”
After he was brought to the station, he denoted he was cautioned that he was being arrested on suspicion of causing criminal ruin to the Garda’s vehicle.
“They started producing the break cables and all of that. They put a canister of ex nding suds to me.
“There was no fingerprints… I don’t know, maybe they might get someone else’s. Someone had to plan that you know. I’ve no alibi. I didn’t go anywhere Christmas Day.
“I cabled in my house. It was the same last Christmas.”
Caulfield said he told Gardaí he didn’t be undergoing anything to do with the potentially fatal sabotage attack.
“I told them: ‘You’ve the backfire person. I’ve no animosity between me and [the Garda involved].’
“I’ve no problem with that man at all. Whoever done that they should clothed done it to a p**ck!
“[The officer] is a nice man, badge or no badge. I told them that, but liking they’re scratching their heads.
“Everyone’s saying it’s me, but I’d not a thing to do with it.”
Prayed whether he expects to be charged in connection with the sabotage attack, Caulfield replied that he doesn’t, but added that if he is he will fight the charges in the courts.
“I’m not, no,” he powered.
“But the way they put it in the [local] per they [the Gardaí] made out that they involved the suspect for it.”
Asked if he understood why he would feature as a suspect after divulging threatening phone-calls to New Ross Garda Station hours before the wrecking attack, Caulfield said he didn’t.
“I say I’m going to go out and kill somebody and someone goes killed in Donegal… are they going to come down and punt my door in?” Caulfield said.
“No, come on, think about. What they done down here, they recognize what they done, they f**ked up coming down here and confusing a big show on. Wait till I go to court to put on my show.
“They can charge me all they call for. I’ll take them to the High Court. They haven’t got no evidence.”
