A FRODSHAM youth has been banned from acting in an anti-social manner, thanks to an ASBO imposed at Northwich Magistrates Court.
Daniel Thomas Hayes, 17, of Coronation Drive, Frodsham, will be the subject of the ASBO until May 22, 2009 and must adhere to the conditions set out by magistrates.
Failure to do so could see the youngster face a prison sentence.
The ASBO will prevent Hayes from acting or inciting or encouraging others to act in an anti-social manner and threatening or inciting or encouraging others to engage in violence or damage against a person or property.
He is also banned from using or encouraging others to use foul, abusive, insulting, offensive threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in a public place and associating with five named people in any place to which the public has access.
PC Nikki Sharp, Anti-Social Behaviour Co-ordinator for Western Rural Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: “I am pleased the courts have recognised the need for this youth to be subject to stringent conditions.
“His anti-social behaviour has caused problems for many people and hopefully this order will go some way to reducing the impact he has on the community.”
She added: “Cheshire Police is committed to tackling anti-social behaviour in all its forms, but we need the help of the public to tell us when and where it is taking place.”
If you witness any incidents of anti-social behaviour, or see any breaches of ASBOs, report these immediately to Cheshire Constabulary.
