A 27-YEAR-OLD Selby man has been given a 12 month drink banning order (DBO) and ordered to pay almost £200 for drunk and disorderly behaviour.

On Sunday, January 20 at approximately 1.45am, Lee Friar, of Brook Street, was on Silver Street in Doncaster Town Centre.

An officer approached him as he appeared to be highly intoxicated and was stumbling around. He bumped into a barrier outside one of the bars and the officer advised him he would be best to go home.

Friar then became verbally abusive to the officer, and when warned about his behaviour, he pushed the officer in the face with both hands causing him to fall backwards.

Friars was then arrested for drunk and disorderly and assaulting an officer.

He appeared at Doncaster Magistrate’s Court on Friday, 1 February and pleaded guilty.

He was given a 12-month DBO which prohibits him from entering any public houses or clubs licensed to sell alcohol within Doncaster Town Centre. He also had to pay compensation of £50, a victim surcharge of £60 plus £85 costs.

PC Jules Moss said: “As a result of his behaviour, Friar can no longer enjoy a night out in Doncaster. Violent and aggressive behaviour induced by alcohol will not be tolerated in Doncaster and it is not an excuse to act in this manner.”
