A 63-year-old man has appeared before magistrates at Skegness after breaking an order to prevent him from drinking alcohol in public.
Charles William Wray of Waring Street, Horncastle, was said to be subject to a five year anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) issued in July 2012, ordering him not to drink alcohol in public in Horncastle.
He admitted drinking beer from a can on August 24.
Jim Clare, prosecuting, told the court that he was seen by police officers who knew him, drinking from a can of Special Brew at the bus stop in the Market Place in the early evening.
Mitigating, Beris Brickles told the magistrates that the order had not been made following a criminal conviction but at the request of the local authority.
He said that Wray had been to Skegness and had been celebrating his birthday.
He said he had been put back on the bus by friends and had got off the bus at Horncastle, still holding the beer can in his hand.
He said he had not been causing any trouble and a friend was with him to take him home.
He added that it was Wray’s first breach of the order.
The magistrates fined Wray £50 and ordered him to pay a £20 victim surcharge.
