Asbo youth gets five-county ban
Scott Newbold
If Newbold breaks the Asbo, he could face two years in prison
A Nottingham teenager has been given an Anti-social Behaviour Order (Asbo) banning him from five counties.

Nottingham Magistrates' Court heard how Scott Newbold, aged 16 and from Aspley, had terrorised members of the community with a gang of five other youths.

Among the incidents cited was one in which Newbold rode a motorbike into a community support officer.

Newbold has been banned from causing harassment in Notts, Lincs, Leics, Derbys and South Yorkshire.

Good news

The teenager has also been banned from being present in a vehicle without permission from the authorised keeper or driver, entering Broxtowe Country Park, in Nottinghamshire, and associating with certain individuals.

If he breaks the terms of the three-year Asbo which started on Tuesday, Newbold could face two years in prison.

PC Gareth Harding, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This Asbo is great for everyone living in the area where Newbold hangs around.

"He created lots of trouble in and around here and hopefully this order will help to curtail his actions towards other people," he said.
