Goldie fined for assault on Glastonbury security guard

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Musician Goldie has been fined £2,463 for assaulting a security guard who refused to let his daughter and a friend into a restricted area of the Glastonbury Festival last year.

The 52-year-old, whose name is Clifford Joseph Price, previously admitted the offence through a video call on a mobile phone from Thailand.

He appeared in person at Bristol Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, alongside his daughter Chance Price, 20.

Prosecutors offered no evidence against Ms Price, of Leavesden, Hertfordshire, and the case against her was dismissed.

District Judge David Taylor ordered Price to pay a fine of £1,080, compensation of £500, a victim surcharge of £108 and costs of £775.

The judge told Price: "Your entirely unjustified actions demonstrate an arrogant sense of entitlement based on your own self importance. The physical injuries sustained by Mr Poole at your hands were relatively minor but the assault has had an emotional and psychological impact on him."
