The 52-year-old had things to do and people to see, so he just phoned in his plea
DJ Goldie made legal history on Thursday by pleading guilty to a Glastonbury Festival assault via Facetime.
The 52-year-old and his daughter Chance, 19, were due in court charged with assault following a brawl with a bouncer at the festival last summer.
But Goldie was away working in Thailand, so instead phoned in with his change of plea, and he’s believed to be the first person in British legal history to do so.
Goldie’s daugher Chance appeared at Bristol Magistrates’ Court on time but when her father was finally contacted he tried to enter his guilty plea via his solicitor who read out an email from him containing his instructions.
