PUBLISHED: 15:47 18 March 2011
TWO Chatteris teenagers who went on a “binge of mayhem” involving fights and alcohol fuelled disorder have been banned from all licensed premises in the town.
Daniel Robertson, 19, of High Street, was made subject to a two year drink banning order by Fenland magistrates.
And Shane Richards, 19, of Wimpole Street, was given a two year anti social behaviour order by the court.
The pair are both banned from:
* Entering or remaining in any pub, wine bar, club or premises licensed to sell alcohol in Chatteris town centre, unless entering a shop or restaurant to buy food or non alcoholic drinks
*Entering or remaining in any pub, wine bar, club or premises licensed to sell alcohol in St Ives town centre, unless entering a shop or restaurant to buy food or non alcoholic drinks
*Being in possession of any container of alcohol in a public place in either Chatteris or St Ives town centre
*Associating with one another in a public place, in either Chatteris or St Ives
Sgt Dave Bax said: “This pair have been involved in drink related crime and disorder, and went on a binge of mayhem during 2010, this involved fights and alcohol fuelled disorder.
“The behaviour has always been in and around licensed premises. Each licensed premises will receive a poster with a picture of both Richards and Robertson. I would encourage all licensees to consider the sale of alcohol to this pair very carefully, and refuse such a sale.
“Pub watch schemes operate to deny trouble makers entry to licensed premises, and the order made by the court allows licensees to stop this pair entering their premises.
“A breach in Robertson’s case could mean arrest and a fine of up to £2,500. In the case of Richards, a breach could lead to arrest and up to five years imprisonment, or a fine, or both.
“The orders were applied for by the Chief Constable, in partnership with other agencies included Fenland District Council and Huntingdonshire District Council. The CCTV scheme is each town will have their pictures and look out for breaches.”
Robertson admitted charges of being drunk and disorderly in Chatteris on February 5 and possessing diazepam on the same date. He was fined a total of £150 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 surcharge. The court ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the drug.
