Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, left prison in the back of a chauffeur driven limo this week after serving a quarter of his sentence for violent disorder during the December student fee demo.
The 65-year-old guitarist was thought to be waiting inside the chauffeur driven Mercedes when 21-year-old Charlie was seen leaving the medium security Wayland Prison near Thetford, Norfolk.
The luxury car took the reunited party to the family’s mansion home in Sussex where the Cambridge student must keep to a strict curfew for the next four months while he’s electronically tagged. After the four months are up, he will serve the last half of his jail sentence on probation.
The adopted son of the Pink Floyd star was jailed in July for 16 months after pleading guilty to the charge of violent disorder during the student riots of last December. Charlie Gilmour was photographed swinging from the Cenotaph Union flag, and also hurled a bin at the passing Rolls Royce carrying the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Following his release from the Norfolk prison, Cambridge University, where the 21-year-old was studying for a degree in history, will decide whether or not to allow Charlie to return to his studies. The son of the Pink Floyd guitarist has been released after serving just a quarter of his 16-month jail term.
