A BIDEFORD teenager has been hauled before magistrates less than a week after being given an ASBO.
Dennis Tee, 18, was given an anti social behaviour order by North Devon Magistrates on Friday following a three-day case. Yesterday (Thursday), he was back in court following two alleged breaches of the order at the weekend.
Magistrates extended the terms of his order, which prohibits him from using or encouraging others to use foul, abusive, insulting, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in any public place in England and Wales.
While previously forbidden from entering Ayres Close, Brennacott Place and Brennacott Road in Bideford, the exclusion zone has now been widened to include much of the west of the town, including Manor Park Road, Clovelly Road, Bowden Green and associated side streets.

After yesterday's hearing, PC Perry Hodgson told the Gazette: "I'm disappointed that Dennis was given bail given the fact that he is alleged to have breached his order so soon after it was issued.
"I'm also disappointed that he hasn't demonstrated that he is prepared to respect the conditions of the ASBO.
