Love/Hate actor and rapper Tommy Kiernan Dunne, a.k.a. ‘Tommy KD’, spoke to a reporter from RTÉ Radio One's Today With Sean O’Rourke from Pearse Street Garda Station.
Reporter Brian O’Connell heard how Tommy found himself arrested after begging to feed his heroin addiction.
‘Tommy KD’ had previously appeared and performed on RTE’s Saturday Night Show with Brendan O'Connor.
Speaking to O’Connell, Tommy explained how his addiction leads to him spending "€60 or €70 a day" on drugs claiming he would need “3 or 4 bags” of heroin a day to feed his habit.
When the reporter asked what lay ahead for him, Mr. Dunne claimed:
"I’ll be charged. I don’t know how long I’ll be in here. Could be an hour, could be two."
"I’ll be charged and then I’ll have to go to court. I’ll get a fine."
"It’s usually €50 to €100. But sure how am I supposed to pay a fine?"
"I’ll be brought to Mountjoy and be out after breakfast. It’s the same old bleedin’ story. I’m getting sick of it, this monkey on my back."
