A TEENAGER who shouted and swore at police after an argument with his girlfriend has been made the subject of a three month curfew order.

Joseph Woolnough threw his bike down in the road and tried to head butt the road when police suggested he and his girlfriend should go their separate ways during a row, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

After ignoring police requests that he should calm down Woolnough was arrested and continued to be abusive and violent.

Woolnough, 19, of Council Houses, Woodbridge admitted using threatening words and behaviour and being in breach of a suspended sentence order. In addition to a three month curfew order between the hours of 9pm and 6am Woonough was ordered to pay �250 costs.

Stephen Rose for Woolnough said that he had just started on an alcohol treatment programme and had completed 64 hours of a 100 hour order for unpaid work in the community. He asked the court to pass a sentence that would allow him to receive help for his problems.
