in 'Guns' Arrest - South London
Press January 1, 2002
COURTNEY has been arrested
dressed as a vicar!
COURTNEY has been arrested for possession of two 'Machine
guns' and four 'Handguns' after being stopped by police while
driving to a film set dressed as a vicar.
Two policemen stopped the former hardman as he drove along
Deptford high Street a fortnight ago and arrested him in connection
with possession of firearms. The 42-year-old writer was on
his way to the film set of a movie called 'Demonic', which
is being filmed in North London, at the time.
Mr Courtney was wearing a dog collar and flowing robes, having
donned the vicar's outfit to play the part of a religious
guru in the film.
He was arrested and later given bail.
When cops asked Mr Courtney if he had anything to say in his
defence he said he told one of them "Bless you my son" before
giving the sign of the cross.
A police source said Mr Courtney was arrested during an early
morning patrol and said the 'guns' had been passed to the
police lab to find out if they were capable of firing live
Mr Courtney was bailed until February.
