The first riots-connected ASBO has been imposed on a Manchester resident for brawling with a police officer at the August 9 disturbances.
Jason Ulett, aged 38 from Ardwick, is now banned from entering the city centre under the order granted by Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 27 September.
Ulett was dressed in dark clothing and riding a pushbike when he entered into a struggle with an attending officer after he refused to turn his hood down.
He was arrested outside the looted Oxford Road Sainsbury’s and later sentenced to 10 weeks imprisonment after pleading guilty to a public order offence the following day.
Councillor Paul Andrews, Manchester City Council’s executive member for neighbourhood services, said: "This order - the first of its kind in the UK - continues to send out the strong message that we will not let a small group of thugs try to ruin our city centre.
"Manchester residents and businesses should take comfort from this order and I urge anyone who spots Ulett breaching his order to contact the police immediately."
The 38-year-old who served only half of the sentence is known for numerous previous convictions including physical violence and theft.
As well as the city centre ban, the order also stipulates that he must leave any shop if asked to and refrain from using threatening language towards anyone.
Should he breech any of the demands he will risk returning to prison.
Assistant Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: "This case offers a timely reminder ahead of this weekend's Trade Union Congress (TUC), where we are expecting large numbers of people to peacefully protest on the streets of Manchester, that anyone who wishes to cause trouble or incite disorder will be met by the full force of the law."
