A man from Whittlesey who was banned from being drunk in a public place after leaving residents “in fear and frightened for their own safety” has been sentenced to 10 weeks in prison after breaching an order.
Mark Barnes, of no fixed abode, was issued with a criminal behaviour order (CBO) in 2016 after six months of alcohol-related anti-social behaviour.
The incidents took place in the area of Falcon Lane, Whittlesey, which left residents in fear of him and frightened for their own safety.
The 45-year-old was ordered not to enter Whittlesey town centre or Falcon Lane, Whittlesey and not to have an open vessel of alcohol in a public place or be drunk in a public place.
However, Barnes was back before the courts on Tuesday (October 30) for breaching the order.
