Drunken woman given ASBO banning her from boozing
A woman has been given an ASBO for being drunk in public on repeated occasions - including 12 times last summer.
Amy Winter, 33, of no fixed abode, was convicted at Brighton Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, December 16, of assaulting a constable.
She has not been given a post-conviction ASBO.
The court was told Winter was abusive to members of the public and was often heard screaming and shouting in the middle of night.
PC Dave Newman said: "Miss Winter's ASBO is a great result and one we hope that will encourage her to stop offending in this manner.
"The police were called to her former address dozens of times and she has had a huge impact on the community due to her alcohol-fuelled behaviour, not only in Seaford but also at her previous address in Newhaven.
"I hope this reassures the public that we do take anti-social behaviour seriously and will take positive action against offenders such as Miss Winter."
As part of her conditions, Miss Winter is not allowed to drink alcohol in a public place or be drunk in a public place.
