Court lets guilty ‘gun’ son of millionaire fly to Barbados

Guilty: Oliver George admitted flashing fake gun tucked into his shorts

A MILLIONAIRE’S son who flashed a fake gun when a barman refused to serve him prosecco won’t face justice for two months — because he is jetting off to the Caribbean today.

Oliver George, 26, has admitted revealing the dummy pistol, tucked into his shorts, at a yacht club.

He could face prison but will not be sentenced until December after telling a court he and his family were due to visit Barbados, where they have a property.

Magistrates made him go home to fetch his £1,100 plane ticket, which proved the month-long holiday ending on November 11 was booked before the offence took place on September 20.

They agreed to delay sentencing until December 4, allowing time for a probation officer to assess George on his return and write a report.

Prosecutor Ryan Senevirante did not object but stressed that he ‘should not be able to escape punishment by simply leaving the country’.

George became annoyed when staff stopped serving him after he had spent an afternoon drinking at Sandbanks Yacht Club.

The son of market owner Brendan George lifted up his cardigan to reveal the fake gun and told the barman ‘don’t be a pussy, give me a drink’, it was claimed. Staff gave him a glass of prosecco but later called the police.

He was arrested at the family’s home in exclusive Sandbanks, near football manager Harry Redknapp’s house.

Terry Scanlan, defending, told magistrates at Poole, in Dorset, his client admitted showing the ‘toy gun’ but denied it was linked to his request for a drink. He said George, who faces up to six months in jail for possessing an imitation firearm in public, had arranged to see a doctor while in Barbados over ‘alcohol-related issues’.
