ADAM ANT APPEARS IN COURT

The star faces criminal damage, assault and firearm possession charges...

ADAM ANT pleaded not guilty at the OLD BAILEY in LONDON today (May 22) after being 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 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.

Goddard, now bearded, pleaded not guilty, according to reports on www.bbc.co.uk. He was further remanded until July 3.

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 pub. He was arrested by armed police in a car near the pub following the incident.

As previously reported on NME.COM, 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.
