18/06/03:Closer to the truth?

Acording to the Daily Mail of June 16 it happened a little different than what was mentioned in the Sun:

(next part is from a post on Antrap, posted by Sally, used with her permission, thanks for that!) It explains more what happened that day, and according to this journalist it wasn,t so much a case of Adam ranting and a raving like the sun would lead us to believe. I will type out a teeny bit of it: To workers in the cafe who know him, Adam Ant's behaviour was truly upsetting. 'He is a regular here and usually he's very quiet and just sits by himself' said Marlena Reeves. 'But he arrived at 8am, and sdtarted talking to all the customers. We never had a problem with him before. He was very confused and wasn,t making much sense. He said he was trying to arrange a pop concert to raise money for children. I could see he was upset and he kept trying to hug me and he was agitated. I offered to take him home and he said ok but then went downstairs, and we found him there alseep"

Without typing it all out it says that Adams mum was called as she frequents the cafe to and she called Adams doctors who phoned the police. He was "gently coaxed out of the basement" and thats where he had taken his trousers off - not in front of an audience as we were led to believe by the scum.


12/06/03: Unfortunately Adam Ant is ill again! ),:

According to the Sun he was involved in a disturbance last Tuesday. Yesterday he was arrested at a cafe after he had smashed some neighbour's windows with stones and stripped in the nearby Curly Dog cafe. He was arrested for criminal damage and taken away with a blanket wrapped round his waist.
