A TEENAGER who racially abused a Turkish man in Ely city centre after being involved in an argument at Club Zest has been given a three-month curfew order.
That means Adam Thulborn, 19, will be unable to visit his girlfriend in Bury St Edmunds - he normally sees her at weekends but must now stay at home on Friday and Saturday night for the next three months.
Thulborn, who also spat at two police officers when arrested, was also ordered to carry out £150 hours of unpaid community work and pay £75 costs by Ely magistrates on Thursday.
Prosecuting, Yetunde Fawenhinmi said police officers were on duty in the early hours of Easter Sunday morning when they found two groups of men having a verbal confrontation, one group was Turkish and the other English.
When police intervened, Thulborn, of Station Road, Littleport, shouted racial abuse and was arrested.
He resisted the police, and spat, hitting Pc Darren Goodwin on the jaw, and hitting PC Neal Holdsworth on the leg.
