A HUTHWAITE youth who was drunk and abusive in Huthwaite on three separate occasions has been made the subject of a drinking banning order.

Daniel Edwards (18), of Chesterfield Road, was arrested on 23rd December last year for using threatening words and behaviour towards Community Protection Officers in the town centre.

He was charged with three public order offences, which he admitted.

Now a joint application made by Nottinghamshire Police and Ashfield District Council to make Edwards the subject of a drink banning order has been granted.

It means Edwards is not allowed to be in a state of drunkenness in the town or to be in the area with an open drinking vessel.

If he breaches the order, Edwards could face arrest and a fine of up to £2,500.

Sutton beat manager Pc Paul Carter said: “Everyone has the right to live and work in their communities without fear or intimidation.

“The Community Protection Officers were simply out doing their jobs and did not deserve to have abuse hurled at them.

“By working with our partners, we will continue to target anyone who makes other people’s lives a misery with their anti-social behaviour.

“It simply will not be tolerated and we will do all we can to hold people like Edwards to account.”

There is currently a dispersal order operating in Huthwaite town centre to tackle anti-social behaviour.
