Criminal Behaviour Order for man causing anti-social behaviour in St Albans

30 Jul 2021

A 49-year-old man from St Albans was given a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) by St Albans Magistrates Court on Tuesday (27 July) for anti-social behaviour.

Wayne Ypey was given the order after pleading guilty to breaching his Community Protection Notice (CPN) which had been previously issued after he breached his Community Protection Warning (CPW).

Under the CBO, which was issued by St Albans Magistrates Court, Ypey must abide by the following conditions or he faces arrest:

  1. Not to shout, be rude or abusive or act in a disorderly, aggressive or threatening manner towards any person in St Albans.
  2. Not to be intoxicated within the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) area of St Albans.
  3. Not to be in possession of an open vessel of alcohol within the PSPO area of St Albans.
  4. To engage with CGL Spectrum initially by personal assessment and to further engage with subsequent treatment. Additionally, to allow consent for CGL Spectrum to share information with the police around engagement.

Sergeant Mike Saunders from the Community Safety Unit explained: “Once intoxicated, Ypey becomes abusive and aggressive in St Albans city centre. His behaviour has caused members of the public and the emergency services alarm and distress and on occasions, fearing their own personal safety.”
