A NUISANCE tenant accused of making life hell for his neighbours has been issued with an anti-social behaviour injunction (ASBI) by Stevenage Borough Council.
The order was granted by town magistrates.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, faces more court action in September when the case will be heard in full.
The interim injunction forbids him from "assaulting, molesting or verbally abusing" his neighbours and from "damaging, defacing or depositing rubbish".

If the tenant breaches the injunction, he could be found guilty of contempt of court which is punishable by a fine or a prison sentence of up to two years.
This is the second time the council has issued an ASBI against a tenant, and comes after tenants told the council they wanted harsher punishments for anti-social behaviour.

Executive councillor for housing and health, Ann Webb, said: "This man lives in one of our flat blocks in the north of the town and has made life a misery for other residents."
"Our aim is always to try and alter people's anti-social behaviour, but if they refuse to change we can and will take further action against them.
