Pink Floyd Star's Son Held Over Student Protest

Charles Gilmour. (Roger Waters must be turning in his grave ... no hang on, he's still alive)

Police arrested the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour on Sunday after he was photographed climbing a war memorial during violent student protests.
Charlie Gilmour when asked to comment on Police behaviour at the Student Demonstrations on Fridday would add only one comment '... Animals ....' he said.!

Can't argue with that ....

Real world update:

The adopted son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has been charged with two offences after he was caught on camera clambering all over a war memorial during London's student riots in December.

Police spotted Charlie Gilmour swinging from a flag pole on the Cenotaph - one of the U.K.'s most important memorials - during a violent student protest against a rise in university tuition fees.

He apologized for his "moment of idiocy" but was arrested at his home in Sussex, England three days after the incident and questioned by police.

The 21-year-old was subsequently freed on bail but on Thursday Gilmour was charged with violent disorder and theft of a mannequin leg.

He will appear at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London for sentencing on February 10.

Charlie was adopted by the Pink Floyd legend when the rocker married his mother Polly Samson in 1994. 
His famous father revealed his son is "thoroughly ashamed of himself" days after the incident.


He's from Oxford University. He should do alright, after all David Cameron, and other Oxford Alumni, once venerable members of Oxford Union's 'Bullingham Club' used to do a lot more criminal damage on a night out on the town; although admittedly that wasn't to the Cenotaph Memorial.
