The CBO, which is in place for two years, prohibits Black from consuming alcohol in a public place, except for licensed premises, or having possession of an unsealed or open container of alcohol in a public place.
Robert Black was fined for the Drunk and Disorderly offence.
If Black breaches the order he will be arrested, and upon conviction, could be sentenced to up to five years’ imprisonment.
Problem Solving Team officer, PC Peter Duffy based at Newbury police station said: “I am glad the courts have supported the police and the community by issuing him with this CBO.
“Breaching any of the conditions could result in imprisonment and I hope this sends a clear message to this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.
“The police will take action and will seek to apply to the courts for CBO’s where appropriate”.
