A man slapped with an ASBO after racking up more than 25 offences in under a year has been jailed after breaching the order four times in a fortnight.

Serial offender Ruvinder Singh Dhami, of Brook Road, Northfleet was handed the Anti-social Behaviour Order in November after North Kent Magistrates Court heard he had been repeatedly drunk and disorderly, spitting at police on arrest in June and behaving aggressively towards women.

Yet only a month later, on December 23, police found him in Milton Road in breach of the ASBO by being drunk and disorderly, was arrested and held in custody over the Christmas period.

Released on December 27 he was later seen by off-duty police drunk again in Rochester and was picked up three days later in Windmill Street when found drunk again.

He was arrested a fourth time on January 3 while in Railway Street, appeared in court the following day and was given 24 days in jail.

When released on January 28 his ASBO will continue.

PC Jim Walker said: “To have Ruvinder Singh Dhami remanded and off the streets away from alcohol until the end of the month is very pleasing.

“He frequently causes a nuisance to passers-by and people who live and work in Gravesend town centre, which he won’t be able to do for a few weeks now.”

The public who see Dhami breaching his ASBO conditions can call Kent Police on 01622 690690.
