Violent drunk banned from hundreds of pubs across London

A VIOLENT man who caused havoc during drunken binges has been banned from entering licensed premises which sell alcohol in four London boroughs.

Arturas Mysko, 34, of no fixed abode, will not be allowed to go into any pubs, bars or restaurants selling booze in Islington, Camden, Haringey and Westminster, after Islington police successfully for applied for an Anti-Social Behaviour Order.

The order also prevents him being drunk and disorderly in public and it was granted at Highbury Magistrates’ Court.

Police officers told the court that Mysko has been involved in drunkenness, verbal abuse, criminal damage and alcohol related violence for a number of years.

Mysko had also breached conditions of an interim ASBO which was granted in September last year.

The breaches included getting thrown out of licensed premises for being drunk, breaking the window of a pub, abusing hospital staff who were trying to treat his injuries and shouting abusively and spitting at police, hotel and bar staff.

Detective Superintendent Adrian Usher said: “Islington police does not tolerate alcohol related violence and problems in our communities, and we will seek to ban any persistent abusive drinkers from every licensed premises in the borough.”
