Asbo – the clerical error

A 15-year-old who in August was collared for being drunk in breach of his Asbo escaped when the court heard how a misprint had stated that he must not be seen in public without alcohol. He was also bound by the order to act in a manner likely to cause harassment, alarm and distress to others, in what was either a clerical error by the magistrates or a radical new law-enforcement policy based on reverse psychology.

I like the latter – my sense of devilment.
