I’m not really a drinker, but can you imagine being legally barred from ordering an alcoholic beverage in a public place or even going into any bar in this country for two years? Such seems to be the case in the U.K. The BBC reports:

A 20-year-old woman is thought to be the first person to be banned from all licensed premises in England and Wales.

Laura Hall, from Bromsgrove in Worcestershire, cannot enter a pub, club, off-licence, or drink alcohol in a public place for two years.

West Mercia Police said it applied for a “Drinking Banning Order” (DBO) after she was repeatedly arrested for drunken behaviour.

The order, introduced last year, was issued by Kidderminster magistrates.
