Louise Glover, a former Playboy Model of the Year, has added a novel category for assault: AWT (assault with a toilet). She has been convicted of assaulting DJ Maxine Hardcastle in a restroom of a club where they both work.
The fight occurred after Hardcastle (daughter of 80s musician Paul Hardcastle) reportedly looked at Glover’s estranged husband, Ben Porter. Glover who works at the club as a hostess reportedly hit Hardcastle in the face, broke her nose, and slammed her head into a bathroom stall. She then allegedly picked her up and slammed her head onto a toilet seat repeatedly and tried to drown Hardcastle by shoving her face into the toilet.
She claimed self-defense. After being found guilty of assault, Glover reportedly threw herself to the floor, howling and sobbing.
What really struck me about this story was her final pitch to the court. She reportedly yelled at the court: “You’ve ruined my life! I’ll never be on TV any more.” That does not tend to be a successful argument in criminal courts.
In 2005, Glover was convicted of benefit fraud and sentenced to 240 hours of community service, which she failed to carry out.
