Applying for the ASBO, prosecutor Sally Rose told Ely Youth Court that Coleby had "an extensive record" of criminal damage.
She said the terms of the ASBO would prevent burglary and graffiti offences, and would act as a deterrent.
The teenager, from Lawns Crescent, Little Downham, admitted causing criminal damage to a window in Littleport on October 3.
"He threw gravel at the window, causing it to smash and caused �295 worth of damage," said Mrs Rose.
Solicitor Christina Metcalfe said Coleby admitted he had been reckless when he broke the window.
"I cannot argue that he has not been involved in anti-social behaviour in the past,2 she said. "He accepts he has no reason to carry spray paint."
Coleby admitted breaching a curfew he was given back in August, by failing to comply on October 11, 13 and 17.
Coleby was given a two year supervision order with an education requirement and must pay �100 compensation for the broken window.
