'Arrogant' Goldie fined for Glastonbury assault

Musician Goldie has been fined for assaulting a security guard in a backstage area of Glastonbury Festival.
The 52-year-old producer and DJ forced Dennis Poole into a headlock after the bouncer refused to let his 20-year-old daughter into the restricted area near the Pyramid Stage in June last year.
Goldie, real name Clifford Joseph Price, had appeared in court via FaceTime in March, pleading guilty from his home in Thailand.

Witnesses described him as a "raging bull" who had "puffed his chest" out before punching Mr Poole and ending up on the floor with the other man, who suffered scratches, a sore ear and grazed elbow."The man with the gold teeth got Dennis on the floor and was on top of him," another security guard said.Goldie, known for his distinctive gold teeth, became well known as a graffiti artist before rising to prominence as a DJ and producer in jungle and drum and bass.The judge called his actions "entirely unjustified" and said they demonstrated an "arrogant sense of entitlement" based on his own self-importance.
