A teenage yob in England has been slapped with in an Asbo (anti-social behaviour order) which bans him from throwing anything.
Kean Lamb, 17, terrorised villagers by hurling snowballs at them over the past six months.
The two-year Asbo bans him from ‘throwing, or encouraging others to throw, any object at property or other people’ unless he is playing sport.
A court heard that 11 terrified locals reported the teen for throwing snowballs at them in the street. He and a gang of teens had done this on ‘numerous other occasions’.
A frightened victim said: “When it was snowing you just knew the moment you stepped outside you would be targeted if they were around and they also used to throw snowballs at our windows and doors all the time.
“This kid has got what he deserved, but at least he can still take part in sport.”
Mid Sussex Magistrates Court also banned Lamb from meeting fellow gang members and using threatening, insulting or abusive behaviour in his village Copthorne, West Sussex.
Sgt Graeme Prentice said Lamb was the ‘ringleader’ of the gang of teens.
He said: “Lamb has been a thorn in the flesh of the Copthorne community for a considerable time.
“Police have attempted to engage with him on numerous occasions without success and his antisocial activities reached a point where the Asbo application became unavoidable.
“I am pleased that it has been granted and I really hope that it may prove a turning point in this young man’s life.”
