England Disgrace

Gary Charles was imprisoned for drink-driving and again soon afterwards for cutting off his electronic tag to go on holiday. In September 2005, he was arrested and convicted for assaulting a woman in a taxi office.  Between the trials Charles was in trouble for turning up to court drunk. He was subsequently fined and given a suspended sentence and a community service order. He was then sentenced to 12 months in prison on 17 December 2006 at Derby Crown Court. He was serving a suspended sentence with a fine and community service, at the time for attacking a woman at a taxi rank.  Despite having been warned a further offence could land him in prison, he menaced a doorman at a bar, pretending he had a knife.  It was the latest in a string of drink-related incidents which included abusing police.
