ADAM ANT’s fragile mental health has prevented him from making his scheduled court appearance in LONDON today (January 18).
The former 80s pop idol was due to appear before Highbury Magistrates Court to face charges that followed him allegedly going on the rampage outside a pub near his north London home last Saturday (January 12).
However, the 47-year-old star remains in psychiatric care at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead where he has been since he was sectioned on Monday (January 14).
His solicitor told the court that assessments were still been carried out on Ant – real name Stuart Goddard – but at present it was not known when he would be fit enough to attend court. The hearing was adjourned until January 31.
The singer’s bail conditions were extended, barring him from going within 100 metres of the Prince Of Wales pub in Kentish Town, where the incident was alleged to have taken place.
Ant is charged with firearms offences, criminal damage and actual bodily harm. He is alleged to have smashed a window in the pub, attacked a man in his 40s and waved a WWII revolver at members of staff after being refused entry to a private party.
