A man dubbed “the blight of Blackpool” has breached a Criminal Anti-Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) for the second time only days after the order was made.
Glenn Stacey, (pictured)who has more than 330 convictions for crimes such as theft, threatening behaviour and alcohol-related offences, had drunk half a bottle of rum for breakfast the day he broke the order again.
Stacey, who has become infamous for his bad behaviour, particularly being aggressive and intimidating towards shop staff, ended the day by being arrested in a bar about 8.45pm.
The 54-year-old defendant, of Victory Road, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to breaching the CRASBO by being in an area he was prohibited from and drinking from an open container of alcohol.
He was fined £75 with £20 victims’ surcharge, but could not pay immediately so Blackpool magistrates said he must remain in the cells until noon instead of paying the financial penalties.
Michael Woosnam, defending, said Stacey had believed he was allowed on the whole of Queen Street, not just the south side.
The only time he caused a disturbance was when the police officer arrived, as he did not think he was breaching his CRASBO.
