Charlie Gilmour, son of Pink Floyd guitarist Dave Gilmour, has been released from prison after serving four months of a 16-month prison sentence.
In May, the 21-year-old Cambridge University student pleaded guilty to Violent Disorder after he was seen hanging from a Union Jack flag on the Cenotaph in London.
He was also found to have leapt on the bonnet of a car which formed part of a royal convoy carrying Prince Charles. During the previous trial Charile Gimour admitted he had taken LSD and valium before the incident .
Gilmour will be subject to a home detention curfew as part of his release, meaning he must remain at his home from 7pm to 7am every night until he has reached the half way point of his sentence.
His solicitor Robert Brown, told the Guardian in a statement: "Today, 15 November, Charlie Gilmour was released from HMP Wayland subject to him complying with a home detention curfew (HDC – commonly known as tagging). The curfew will continue until the halfway point of his 16- month sentence."
He continued: "This is standard procedure for prisoners who are serving a sentence of between three months and four years. Charlie Gilmour was sentenced to 16 months' imprisonment on 15 July 2011 and his release today subject to HDC is therefore in line with normal Home Office procedure."
