Son of Pink Floyd guitarist in court over protest

Son of Pink Floyd guitarist in court over protest

The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has appeared in court to face charges of violent disorder during student protests against the British government's decision to raise university tuition fees.
Twenty-one-year-old Charlie Gilmour is also accused of stealing a mannequin leg during the chaotic London street protests. A Crown Prosecution Service spokesman says the theft charge will likely be dropped.
Gilmour, a Cambridge University student, shocked many in Britain when he was photographed swinging from the Union Jack attached to the Cenotaph, Britain's most important war memorial, during the Dec. 9 demonstration.
Most student protesters marched peacefully, but some clashed with police and others attacked a car carrying Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla.
