police have vowed to get tough on drunken louts after calling time on the boozing of two more people.

Aden Bedford, 24, and David Masters, 32, have been banned from licensed premises in the town centre for 12 months following their drunk and disorderly behaviour.

Bedford, of St Vincent’s Avenue, Doncaster, approached two police officers in their car outside College Road police station and swung his fist through the open window claiming he was going “to knock them both out”.

He continued to be verbally abusive and aggressive during the incident at approximately 11.20pm.

Meanwhile Masters, of Highfield Road, Wheatley, was taken to court following his actions.

Police were called to an incident at The Dome in Bawtry Road where Masters was causing a disturbance due to the amount of alcohol he had consumed.

He became verbally abusive towards officers, violently smashed his mobile phone on the floor and ran towards a nearby bridge.

Officers managed to pull him back from jumping from the bridge and arrested him.

Masters continued being verbally abusive and violent by punching the doors inside the police van and by punching the cell door in custody.

Both were handed drink banning orders by magistrates.

Masters also received a curfew until May 13 ordering to remain be at his home address between 7pm and 7am, and was ordered to pay £130 costs for the damage he caused to the cell.

The latest DBOs followed incidents in December and February.

Pc Martin Smith said: “Drunken, anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in Doncaster.

“Both these men have 12 months to think about their actions as they are now unable to enjoy the night time economy that Doncaster has to offer because of their disorderly behaviour.”
