Today, Humberside Police has reiterated its commitment to keeping people safe at night – and this DBO is expected to be the first of more being issued to deal with troublemakers.
Brennan, of Edward Street, in Grimsby, was arrested in November. At court, he was also handed a community order and £85 costs, was ordered to pay £100 in compensation and carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.
The DBO does allow him to use licensed restaurants within the Cleethorpes High Street area, but if he breaks any terms of the order, he will be arrested.
Inspector Neil Pattison, of Humberside Police, said: "We continue to work hard with our partner agencies to ensure that the night time economy in both Grimsby and Cleethorpes, is one that is trouble free for both those who frequent it and those who work to keep it safe.
"The first DBO to be issued in North East Lincolnshire is a real step in the right direction for the police, local authority, the licensees and the door staff who work in the area.
"It shows those people, who are in the minority, that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated and that those people will now be subject to a banning order which prevents them from spoiling a night out for other people.
"I would like to again remind people that we do take offences related to drink and drugs very seriously in North East Lincolnshire and if you are intent on causing issues in and around the pubs in Grimsby and Cleethorpes you will be dealt with accordingly."
DBOs were first made available to the police and courts in August 2009, and are similar to Antisocial Behaviour Orders.
They are civil orders, and are used to address an individual's alcohol misuse behaviour, and to protect others and their property from such behaviour by imposing any prohibition which is necessary.
