A Manchester schoolboy has been ordered to behave in class or face being locked up.
Breaking an Asbo can lead to being locked up
It is the first time in Manchester that an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) covering a pupil's behaviour in school has been issued.
It was imposed on Lere Akinwale, 16, after he disrupted a science class at the Academy High School.
Akinwale picked up several unlit Bunsen burners and threw them across the classroom at the school in Moss Side.
Manchester magistrates said it was the latest incident in a catalogue of bad behaviour.
The teenager, from Aston Avenue, Fallowfield, was accused of taking part in a racially-motivated assault on a resident, playing football in residents' gardens, swearing at passers-by and throwing stones at houses.
He was also alleged to have threatened residents, written graffiti, carried a four-inch knife while making threats and stopped customers entering and leaving a convenience store.
As well as covering his behaviour in school, the order will ban Akinwale from using abusive, insulting or offensive language and behaviour in public.
He cannot carry a weapon or spend time in public with 10 named associates.
Manchester City Council confirmed that this is the first order of its kind in the city to be issued specifically to cover behaviour in a classroom.
Kathy August, school principal, said: "The Academy is determined to stamp out anti-social behaviour.
"We will not allow a minority to damage the learning and achievement of the many."
Steve Rumbelow, director of housing at Manchester City Council, said: "This young man has been behaving in an extremely dangerous manner.
"The order he now faces should be seen as a final warning to behave himself or face serious consequences.
"He will be in no doubt that to breach this order is a criminal offence and could result in being sent to detention."
