A WINCHESTER man who persistently breached an anti-social behaviour order by drinking alcohol in public has been jailed for two months.

Otto Bingeris, 46, of Jewry Street, admitted having an open container of alcohol on December 20 in breach of the ASBO.

Magistrates in Basingstoke heard it was the fifth such breach in six months and the second in four weeks.

Bingeris admitted the charge. As he is not responding to court orders the magistrates said they had no choice but to send him to prison.
