Hmm. The term "ASBO" ( "ass -poe") is used in the video, and was also used in the "Noisy Sex" thread (in a BBC article). Stands for "Anti-Social Behaviour [sic] Order". From the context, it looks like it's the Brit equivalent of a US "disturbing the peace" citation.

I'd not seen this term before, but I guess it's common in the UK. Another tidbit in case I get on Jeopardy someday.

Correct - it is a fairly recent offence introduced in 1998.

Quote:
An Anti-Social Behaviour Order or ASBO (pronounced /ˈęzboʊ/) in the United Kingdom and in the republic of Ireland is a civil order made against a person who has been shown to have engaged in anti-social behaviour. Breaking an ASBO can render up to five years imprisonment. In the UK, there has been criticism that an ASBO is sometimes viewed as a badge of honour by some younger people. Many see the ASBO connected with young delinquents.

This one looks a little newer than 1998.

Another in a long line of "keeping things in perspective" thoughts.
