Struggling actor shares more than his 2 pennies worth

Nicholas Read of Wade Close, Cheadle was last week seen at Lincoln Magistrates Court on the 29 March to enter a plea regarding charges of “Outraging public decency”.

48-Year-old Read seen pictured, had once starred in well-known titles such as Harry Potter the philosophers stone and Star Wars Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Struggling to find work he had been hired by a Stag party and was dressed in a Jockey costume.

The incident reported to local police on the 2 March, Shows Read exposed himself in an indecent manner at an Ingoldmells amusement arcade. A member of staff had asked Read to leave the premises within moments of the offence and after a public appeal to find the culprit, Read was identified by his ex-wife.

The defendant initially stated he had been so drunk he had mistaken the 2p tipping-point style slot machine to be a urinal when he proceeded to pull down his trousers exposing his bare backside.  Shown on the amusement arcade’s CCTV Footage, Read can be seen at the exact moment while a member of the public stands near.

Adding more embarrassment to the situation, when asked by the court to stand for sentencing, Read answered simply with “I am”.  Following a series of similar offences with varying degrees of seriousness dating back as far as 1995, Read pleaded guilty and was handed a 12-month community order and a 7am to 7pm curfew and ordered to pay £85 costs and an £85 victim surcharge
