TEENAGE tearaway Jason Nicholls is today starting more than three months behind bars.
18-year-old Nicholls, currently subject to an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (Asbo), was sentenced to 96 days detention in a young offenders institute.
Nicholls, of Drake Avenue, admitted breaching his community rehabilitation and community punishment orders.
South East Suffolk Magistrates Court heard on Monday that Nicholls turned up for just 12 hours of community punishment and rehabilitation.

But because Nicholls failed to comply, Ipswich magistrates re-sentenced him for the driving offence.
Sentencing, Chairman of the Bench Robert Skinner said: "You have failed to express willingness to comply with the regulations of the community order that you received for your offending.
"You are going to be sentenced to 96 days imprisonment. There is no other alternative in this situation.
"It is normally four months, but we have deducted 20 per cent for the hours you did do.
"And that is for driving whilst disqualified."
