Paul Restall, aged 40, of Victoria Road, Balby, has been described by South Yorkshire Police as 'one of Doncaster's most aggressive beggars'.
He has been issued with a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order by Doncaster magistrates, which bans him or anyone else from begging on his behalf.
If he caught in the act again he will be prosecuted.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Restall is one of Doncaster's most aggressive beggars.
"He must not sit and beg from any person or instruct or encourage someone to do so on his behalf."
