Anti-Social Behaviour Order issued to Bridport man

A man from Bridport has been made the subject of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order in Dorset.

Daniel Carey, 30, was issued the order by Weymouth Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 29 January 2015 after being found guilty of a number of offences including threatening behaviour and assaulting a police officer in October 2014. He received a restraining order preventing him from approaching staff at a pub in Bridport and a community order. He was also ordered to 100 hours unpaid work.

The Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) was secured under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 to protect the public and is valid for three years.

Dorset Police’s application to the court was supported by evidence from the community and the Bridport and Area Pubwatch Scheme. The Force also worked in conjunction with the Community Safety Team at West Dorset District Council.

Police Constable Scott McGregor, of Bridport police, said: “Carey’s threatening behaviour spanned many years. As the Bridport town beat officer my goal is to help protect the residents from being exposed to this type of behaviour.

“I am pleased the court agreed that Carey’s behaviour is not acceptable and the people of Bridport deserve protection.

“I hope this order also reminds others that threatening behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated in Dorset and Dorset Police will take residents’ concerns seriously.”

The order states that Daniel Carey must not:

  • Act or incite others to act in an anti-social manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household in Dorset.
  • Use or incite others to use threatening, intimidating, insulting, racist or abusive words or behaviour in any place to which the public has access in Dorset.
  • Be drunk in any place to which the public has access in Dorset.
  • Consume intoxicating liquor in any place other than on licensed premises in Dorset.
  • Enter any licensed premises, which is part of the Bridport and Area Pubwatch Scheme, or any other premises or properties from which he has been banned and communicated to him in writing in Dorset.

PC Scott McGregor continued: “Dorset Police will continue to encourage those with alcohol or drug dependency in Bridport to seek help and support through the local service provided by Exeter Drug Programme in Downes Street.”
