The star appears in court accused of charges arising from an alleged incident at a pub...
ADAM ANT has been remanded on bail until May 1 after making a brief appearance at the OLD BAILEY in LONDON today (March 6) accused of charges arising from an alleged incident at a pub.
The 47-year-old former frontman of early 80s heroes Adam And The Ants appeared under his real name Stuart Goddard. He said nothing during the hearing.
He is accused of criminal damage, assault causing actual bodily harm and possession of a firearm or imitation firearm with intention to cause fear of violence.
The charges relate to an alleged incident at a pub in London’s Kentish Town on January 12. The singer is said to have become riled and then pulled an imitation revolver when he was refused entry to a private party at the Prince Of Wales. He was arrested by armed police in a car near the pub following the incident.
Ant’s fragile mental health prevented him from making a scheduled court appearance in London on January 18. He was sectioned and placed in psychiatric care for a time immediately following the incident.
Ant formed Adam And The Ants in 1977. Dressing in dandy pirate gear on the advice of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, he enjoyed success in the early 80s with debut album ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ which spawned Number Two hit ‘Ant Music’. Second album ‘Prince Charming’, brought two Number One singles, ‘Stand and Deliver’ and ‘Prince Charming’. The band split in 1982 and following a brief solo career which spawned another Number One single in ‘Goody Two Shoes’, Ant concentrated on acting for a time appearing in shows such as ‘The Equaliser’. A solo return in the mid 90s flopped.
