It comes after Gene’s father Liam said ‘99% of judges are massive c***z’ in a furious Twitter rant last month after his ‘entitled’ son was criticised in court over a drunken fight at a Tesco Express.  

Gene and Ringo Starr’s grandson Sonny Starkey, 20, had charges for assault and affray dropped after agreeing to be bound over.  

However, judge Joanna Greenberg, described them as ‘entitled’ and said their behaviour was ‘completely out of order, no doubt as a result of having been drinking’.

The incident happened at a Tesco Express in Hampstead, north London on 17 May 2019 after their friend, former IMG model Noah Ponte, 21, was accused of stealing a can of gin and tonic. He was acquitted of theft by a jury.

Despite his son being spared formal punishment, Oasis star Liam Gallagher still took issue with the judge’s comments, and criticised her during a Twitter tirade.

‘Judge Judy can kiss my a*** hole,’ he wrote. ‘From one entitled p**** to another, as you were LG x.’

He continued: ‘Funny thing is 99 per cent of judges are massive C**** LG. Asking folk to sit down, stand up, rise, f*** off with your noncey wig.’  

He added: ‘If ya can’t steal from Tescos, where can you steal from eh? This country is over.’

Gallagher and Starkey have now been made the subject of a binder – meaning they have promised to ‘keep the peace and be of good behaviour’ for 12 months or pay £500.

The pair and their friend, Ponte, denied all charges against them. They faced affray and assault by beating charges, while Gallagher and Ponte were accused of racially aggravated assault. Ponte was also charged with theft.

The trio attempted to get all charges thrown out against them in November 2020, but were unsuccessful barring one charge against Gallagher of common assault which was dismissed.  

Wood Green Crown Court heard the trio had been drinking at an 18th birthday party but then went to the Tesco Express store on their way.

Ponte, a UCL architecture student, said he picked up a can of a £1.70 gin and tonic but knew it could not be sold because the store did not sell alcohol after 11pm.

He also said he paid £1.70 for two packets of salt and pepper nuts on the self-service till, then left them there, and attempted to leave the store with the can.

CCTV played to jurors showed two Tesco workers tried to stop the men from leaving including a moment when Ponte claimed a Tesco worker grabbed him by the arm and pulled him back into the store.

Starkey and Gallagher were then accused to have thrown ‘kicks and punches’ down the aisle at the shop worker trying to stop them from leaving.

Duty manager Hiram Rajput claimed to have heard the phrase, ‘You bloody Indians. Go back to where you came from.’

However, this was denied by Gallagher and Ponte at an earlier hearing, with Ponte’s representative claiming they said ‘bloody idiots’.

Following the accused bad behaviour in the store, Starkey was placed in a headlock by a Tesco shop worker for ‘several minutes’.  

The Crown Prosecution Service were forced to accept that Starkey was ‘lawfully defending himself’ and Gallagher was lawfully defending his friend against further assault.

A fourth friend was not charged because he acted as a ‘moderating influence’.

During the trial for the theft of the gin and tonic, prosecutor Alexander Agbamu said the incident involved three phases: the alleged theft by Ponte, the kicks and punches said to have been delivered by Gallagher and Starkey, and the restraint of Starkey by a Tesco worker.

Earlier, prosecutors said they received two previously unseen pieces of evidence that meant they were unable to proceed to trial for Gallagher and Starkey.

Mr Agbamu said: ‘[A customer who now lives in Peru] described young men throwing groceries around and also saw a member of Tesco staff hitting and grabbing Mr Starkey and appearing to target him.

‘[She] described the actions of the Tesco member of staff and described him as being the aggressor.  

‘Mr Gallagher and Mr Starkey have a strong case to the effect that Mr Starkey was lawfully defending himself and Mr Gallagher was lawfully defending Mr Starkey against further assault.

‘[The customer] did provide the police with her contact details and in July 2019 and subsequently the police wrote to her at her address but all correspondence came back to the police returned to sender.

‘The Crown understands [the customer] is now in Peru and would have been giving evidence via TV link.

‘That has called the Crown to reassess the case against Mr Gallagher and Mr Starkey.’
