TEENAGE tearaway Ryan Wade is facing jail after a drunken outburst against town bouncers.
Chronic criminal Wade was subjected to an anti-social behaviour order in 2001 in a bid to halt his stream of offending.
But he admitted his fourth breach of the order when appearing before South East Suffolk Magistrates Court.
And magistrates warned him his latest breach could land him in jail before adjourning the case for a pre-sentence report.
Wade, 18, of Byron Road, Ipswich, admitted hurling a stream of verbal abuse against bouncers at Ipswich town centre bar Edwards on April 12.
Stephen Coleman, prosecuting, told the court Wade was refused entry to the bar because of inappropriate footwear.

But the teenager refused to move away from the entrance and began hurling insults at the doormen.
Police were called, but their efforts to calm Wade failed. Mr Coleman said they were forced to arrest him when his tirade of foul-mouthed abuse continued.
Mr Coleman said the teenager was clearly in breach of an Asbo condition banning him from causing alarm, harassment or distress to others.
Richard O'Sullivan, mitigating, said Wade worked hard during the week and sometimes drank to excess at the weekend.
He asked magistrates to consider alternatives to a jail sentence and urged them not to commit the case to crown court for sentence.
He said: "It would be wholly inappropriate to commit to crown court because that would imply that your sentencing powers are not great enough, which I would say they clearly are.
"A better way forward in this case would be to look at the offending behaviour rather than a custodial sentence which would mean losing his job."
But in ordering the pre-sentence report, magistrates said they could rule out a prison term.
Wade was remanded in custody until May 8.
