Zak Joseph Cain, 20, of no fixed abode, was found drunk in a public place in Leyland on November 21, Chorley Magistrates’ Court heard.

It put him in breach of a five-year criminal behaviour order that was imposed by Preston magistrates on October 23.

The bench imposed an electronically monitored curfew to an address in Mendip Road, Clayton-le-Woods, near Chorley, until January 22, after he indicated a guilty plea to the breach.

He was also ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge, £85 costs and a £180 criminal courts charge.

Cain was given the order after pleading guilty in October to causing at least £600 damage to people’s cars on a Leyland street.

He admitted three counts of damaging motorists’ wing mirrors on September 18.

The order states he must not act in an anti-social manner, congregate in a group of more than three except when attending a pre-arranged event by an offical body, use or threaten violence towards any person, or be drunk or in possession of any open container of alcohol in any public street in Chorley and South Ribble.

Cain previously hit the headlines in 2011 after a catalogue of nuisance at shops on Towngate, Leyland.
