John-jules Escapes Jail
Former RED DWARF star Danny John-Jules has been sentenced to 120 hours community service after he was found guilty of attacking two refuse collectors.
The British actor was arrested in February (08) on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm following the incident outside his London home.
John-Jules is said to have accosted the men wearing only a bathrobe and slippers, after they failed to empty his trash bin. He then lashed out at the pair, punching and kicking them.
Magistrates at a London court found the 47-year-old guilty at a hearing in October (08). But they ruled there was no evidence to support claims he had wielded a knife during the attack.
John-Jules was handed the community service order and told to pay $518 (GBP350) in costs and $111 (GBP75) in compensation at a hearing on Thursday (13Nov08).
However, the star subsequently insisted his "conscience is crystal clear" and is considering appealing the ruling.
