Asbo – the first involving alcohol

Mark Whittaker of Gloucestershire is currently at large after going on the run in June, charged with breaking the terms of his 2003 Asbo, the first banning a man from drinking. The 47-year-old is alleged to have threatened a petrol pump assistant who refused to turn on the machine – because Whittaker’s companion had a lit cigarette. Nearly a quarter of Asbo cases involve alcohol or drugs.
