Wayne Fontana's Fashion Faux Pas

DERBY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — 60s pop sensation Wayne Fontana, who's real name is Glyn Ellis, found himself behind bars after arriving at court dressed as a Roman goddess.

Fontana had been scheduled to appear before the Derbyshire court to answer to charges that the former band leader of the Mindbenders had lit a debt collector's car on fire. He arrived at court wearing a fake sword, crown and cape, claiming he was dressed as Justitia, a composite Roman goddess of justice.

Judge Andrew Hamilton, who presided over the matter on behalf of her Majesty was not amused, stating "He has come dressed as a fool and he wants to act like a fool. I hope they give him a prison uniform at Nottingham Prison to keep him warm."

Fontana maintained that he had not intended to endanger Mr Stott, the debt collector's life when he lit his car on fire. The judge remanded Fontana to custody of jailers and has ordered a psychiatric review. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
