Charlie Gilmour warned he could face jail time


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

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

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

[b]Price[/b] told [b]Gilmour[/b]: “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.”
