Drunken threats led yob to court.

A teen yob was ordered to do 120 hours unpaid work.

Gary Gaffing was abusive to staff and police when he was barred from the Clock pub in Springwell Avenue, Wrekenton, Gateshead, last Christmas Eve.

Kim Elder, prosecuting, told Gateshead Magistrates that the 18-year-old was drunk and threatening. He was given repeated warnings but the abuse continued.

Officers decided he'd "ran out of chances" and he was arrested.

The incident was in breach of a conditional discharge given to Gaffing for being drunk and disorderly on September 25, at the same pub.

Unemployed Gaffing, of Whingate Gardens, Gateshead, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly, breaching the conditional discharge and absconding. He was ordered to complete the unpaid hours in 12 months and pay pounds 50 costs.
