David Gilmour's Son Charged for Violent Disorder


David Gilmour's Son Charged for Violent Disorder
Charlie Gilmour who was adopted by the Pink Floyd rocker is to face the judge in court next month for stealing a mannequin leg as well.


The adopted son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has been charged with two offenses after he was caught on camera clambering all over a war memorial during London's student riots in December. Police spotted Charlie Gilmour swinging from a flag pole on the Cenotaph - one of the U.K.'s most important memorials - during a violent student protest against a rise in university tuition fees.

He apologized for his "moment of idiocy" but was arrested at his home in Sussex, England three days after the incident and questioned by police. The 21 year old was subsequently freed on bail but on Thursday, January 27 Gilmour was charged with violent disorder and theft of a mannequin leg. He will appear at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London for sentencing on February 10.

Charlie was adopted by the Pink Floyd legend when the rocker married his mother Polly Samson in 1994. His famous father revealed the 21 year old is "thoroughly ashamed of himself" days after the incident.

A statement from Samson in the days following her son's arrest, read, "We're deeply ashamed of him and he's deeply ashamed of himself... He's already so ashamed he can barely speak. I am as ashamed of him as he is of himself."

Charlie's biological father is acclaimed playwright and actor Heathcote Williams.
