It was when the 15-year-old miscreant was hauled into court that the problem was first noticed.

Angered by his unruly, boozed-up behaviour, police had hoped magistrates would punish the youth for breaching his Asbo. He hadn't.

Closer examination revealed that he had mistakenly been ordered not to be in public "without" alcohol and that he was also duty bound to act in a threatening manner likely to cause harassment, alarm and distress to others.

After the boy escaped punishment as a result of the misprint, the officials behind the mistake were asked to deliver a new Asbo with more appropriate wording, the Daily Mirror reported.

Sheit... maybe that's what is wrong with Venom; the courts didn't find his typo

That is literally an Anti-Social Behaviour Order.

ASBO? I know what an AVO is, not an ASBO though. Reading between the lines an order against drunken behaviour, just curious what the letters stand for.

Ooh, nice crosspost. Even took me 2 minutes to make it. :p

I mean, the drunk and disorderly in public I can see if someone's going around picking fights and pissing on windows, but music being too loud and all that rot....that sucks.

It's effectively a way of being able to send people to prison for offences which wouldn't normally warrant it and without having to legislate for the individual offence.
