This latest advice from police comes after trouble flared in two separate incidents in Lowestoft at the weekend.
Two men involved in an altercation in Marine Parade in the early hours of Sunday were spotted by a police officer working with Waveney District Council CCTV operators. A 28-year-old man was arrested a short time later for threatening behaviour. He admitted the offence and was subsequently cautioned.
An hour later, trouble flared in Royal Plain. A 40-year-old man was issued with a fixed penalty notice by police for disorderly behaviour after he admitted threatening violence to another man and a police officer and being abusive.
Crime reduction inspector Chris Gilmore said: 'We want everyone to enjoy a safe, fun night out in our towns and villages this Christmas.
'If you cause trouble, you will be firmly but fairly dealt with. �80 fixed penalty notices will be issued on the spot to anyone causing trouble. You may also be arrested and could spend a night in the cells.'
