A 19 year old has been given a five-year-long anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) banning him from drinking alcohol or being drunk in St Albans city centre.
Tyler Kirk was issued with the ASBO by St Albans Magistrates’ Court on July 8 following an application by St Albans district council, in partnership with Herts Police.
The five-year order prevents Kirk from drinking alcohol or being drunk in a designated public place (DPP) in the centre of St Albans.
It also bans him from using or threatening the use of violence towards anyone in the DPP or anyone living in England and Wales.
Kirk, who is currently in prison, has been ordered not to enter Gorham Drive in St Albans for two years.
He received the ASBO after committing a number of anti-social acts in the city centre.
The order also prevents Kirk from:

• being disorderly and using abusive or threatening language to anyone in the designated area or towards anyone living in England and Wales;
• having an unsealed container of alcohol in the DPP unless at a licensed premises;
• engaging in acts of anti-social behaviour that are likely to cause harassment or alarm in the designated area or towards anyone living in England and Wales.
St Albans neighbourhood police Inspector Adam Such warned: “If [Kirk] breaches this order, swift action will be taken to place him before the court once again.
“ASBOs are a very useful tool to help deal with serious cases of anti-social behaviour that affect the quality of life of others.”
Cllr Beric Read, the council’s portfolio holder for community engagement, said: “We are aware that there are often underlying factors contributing to people’s anti-social behaviour, for example, alcohol and drug abuse.
“We work to ensure that people are put in touch with relevant support services that can help them.”
