Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour’s son pleads guilty to violent disorder

Charlie Gilmour warned he could face jail time

Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, has pleaded guilty to violent disorder.

Gilmour has admitted to throwing a bin at a convoy of cars which included one carrying Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. The incident took place on Regent Street in London on December 9 last year during a protest about student fees.

According to the Daily Mail Gilmour pleaded guilty this morning at Kingston Crown Court. After giving his plea he was bailed until July 8 so he can complete his exams at Cambridge University. He was warned by Judge Nicholas Price though that he may face a spell in prison when he is sentenced formally in July.

Price told Gilmour: “You have accepted counts of a serious matter and it may well be the course of one of immediate custody. This matter will come back to this court on July 8.”

The 21 year-old has since apologised for his actions, calling them “a moment of idiocy.”
