The fallen star admits threatening pub customers who made fun of his "cowboy" clothes...

Fallen 80s pop hero ADAM ANT pleaded guilty today (August 13) of threatening pub customers who made fun of his “cowboy” clothes.

Appearing at the Old Bailey under his real name Stuart Goddard, the former frontman of The Ants admitted affray.

The charge relates to an incident at a pub in London’s Kentish Town on January 12 when the singer pulled an imitation revolver on some revellers who had made fun of his appearance. He threatened to shoot them if they didn’t move back.


Three further charges of criminal damage, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possession of an imitation firearm were denied by the singer and dropped by the prosecution.

At an earlier hearing, the court was told how customers in the Prince Of Wales pub started humming the theme from western ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’, when he walked in wearing a combat jacket and matching flat cap.

Goddard left and returned with a starting pistol, an heirloom he had inherited from his father.

At an earlier hearing, the court also heard how Goddard threw a car alternator he found lying on the street through the pub window.

No one was hurt but Judge Jeremy Roberts said at an earlier hearing that doctors believed Goddard had been in a “hyper-manic” state.

Following his arrest, the singer had been sectioned and placed in psychiatric care in the Royal Free Hospital, in north London.


He spoke today only to acknowledge his name and to answer “guilty” to the charge he faced.

The judge delayed sentenced for psychiatric reports would be helpful in deciding sentence and bailed Goddard to return on October 2.
