Man Banned From Lying On The Ground In Buckinghamshire
“DAVIES came to police attention initially by making time wasting calls to the emergency services,” says PC Chris Allman outside Wycombe Magistrates’ Court, where Andrew Davies, 51, of Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire, has been haded an ASBO for feigning injuries.
“On most occasions he would be intoxicated. When dealt with by a police and council joint team he gave away his telephone to stop the temptation. However he then took to pretending to fall in the street near his home as a way of attracting attention to himself. He would lay there feigning an injury until an ambulance attended.
“On a number of occasions he was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital where he was more thoroughly checked over but he was always discharged as having no injuries. He has been offered support from numerous agencies and given many opportunities to change his behaviour. Davies’ continual lack of engagement has ultimately resulted in this town wide ASBO.”
Davies is banned “from lying on the ground or pretending to have an injury as a way of attracting attention. He has also been told he cannot be intoxicated whilst in a public place or call the emergency services or initial response unless in times of a genuine emergency”.
