Anyone who owns a gun in Britain must be nuts. http://[url]http://dailynews.yahoo.com/htx/ap/20020116/en/adam_ant_1.html[/url]
Wednesday January 16 6:06 AM ET Adam Ant Committed to Mental Hospital LONDON (AP) - Adam Ant, the flamboyant pop singer who scored hits in the 1980s, has been committed to a London psychiatric hospital after being arrested for firearms offenses, police said Wednesday. The singer, whose real name is Stuart Goddard, was taken to the Royal Free Hospital by police on Monday - just 24 hours after he was accused of pulling out a gun at the Prince of Wales pub in north London. Under the Mental Health Act, doctors will be able to hold Ant for 28 days while they assess his condition. Goddard was charged on Saturday over the pub incident with possession of a firearm or imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, and with criminal damage and assault. He was bailed to appear at Highbury Magistrates Court on Friday. The Mirror newspaper reported receiving a rambling phone call from Ant from inside the hospital. ``They've put me in the 'Alice in Wonderland' ward because they think I'm crazy,'' the tabloid quoted Ant as saying. ``The whole thing's a conspiracy and they are out to get me. I'm not mad.'' The singer, famous for his painted face and flamboyant dress sense, scored a string of hits including ``Stand and Deliver,'' ``Prince Charming,'' and ``Goody Two Shoes.'' He was scheduled to headline a 1980s nostalgia tour this spring.

I've been following this for a few days. Doesn't look too good for Stu.

I like Adam Ant.

4 weeks? That sounds a little stiff of a punishment considering he wasn't allowed a trial.z

Adam/Stu should have taken the tax exile route and left Limeyland long ago. When he still had the chance.

What the hell is this?
Goddard was charged on Saturday over the pub incident with possession of a firearm or imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence

So did he have a gun or not? Or, do they just have one crime for both guns and non-guns on the other side of the pond?

Sounds like they treat them both the same. We do too, at least theoretically -- rob a bank with a cap gun and you still go to prison for armed robbery. BTW, another article had slightly better wording; turns out the "Prince of Wales" is a bar (pub), not a person. After I read the AP article above, I thought Adam Ant had threatened one of the royals!

[B]...with intent to cause fear of violence[/B] LOL! The Brits sure have a way with words — "My intent was to make you fearful of any violence which I may or may not have been planning on actually committing..." [B]Anyone who owns a gun in Britain must be nuts.[/B] Any gun owner who [B]lives in Britain[/B] must be nuts!

To the tune of [u]Goodie two Shoes[/u]: [s]Don't[/s] Can't Drink, [s]Don't[/S] Can't Smoke - What Do You Do?? If you live in England, you can't own a gun now. LMFAO but I do feel sorry for him though!
