Former Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan, 39, has been spared jail after pleading guilty to assaulting his ex-fiancee Vikki Ager.

The singer, 39, appeared at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday accused of assault by beating on April 9 this year.

Meighan originally denied an assault had taken place. However, after watching video footage, he told officers he could not watch it any further because it was “horrible”.

CCTV of the attack was played in court as the 39-year-old wiped his eyes with a tissue and held his head in his hands.

I got arrested with drugs 3 years ago, every month the metropolitan police write to me to tell me that the evidence has been passed for review, I told them I’m guilty. Why aren’t our cases treated with such urgency as the rich

If it was a regular Joe public he'd be facing time, it's only because he has money he's spared jail.

Another wealthy person avoids jail and gets a 2 week free work slap on the wrist and will consist of sitting in an office making tea for people... Justice needs reform in this country.. Sentences aren’t harsh enough.. And in serious cases like murder and terrorism they are getting only 14 years.. It’s a disgrace.. Labour won’t do it and the Conservatives haven’t addressed it.. Pressure needs to mount on this.

Kasabian are fortunate as they have Serge who has a great voice. It does look like Tom has been very fortunate.

These 5sec clips hardly give us any context do they. Someone could shove their mate in anger, fumble it and end up pushing their neck and head instead of chest. You could end up stacking it into furniture, tumbling down stairs, maybe even killing them and yourself going over a balcony. Factually, lawyers and journalists can then give us all kinds of sub 1 minute descriptions.

Now him leaving makes sense, he knew he could get a jail term so decides to leave the band as its better for the press to say "ex kasabian frontman jailed" instead of "kasabian frontman jailed" if he did get a custodial sentence
The "ex" makes a big difference

Makes you wonder what happened for him to react the way he was. What he's done is wrong no denying that but where is the woman in all of this? Oh and she wants to resume the relationship as well... If it was that bad you'd be out of there no problem.

Anyone would have though he had murdered someone although yes he was out of order to what he did i am sure if he could turn the clock back he would do. He has now possibly lost everything punishment served now the help must begin before we see another rock star gone.

Community service for a physical attack at a crown court? What the hell is going on in this country. He should be mandated psychiatric evaluation and sessions of at least 200 hours at his expense if he's dealing with "personal issues" that caused him to attack someone in a court of law!

Hey PRINCE CHARLES WHY DON'T YOU DO YOUR BROTHER A FAVOUR AND SIT HIM DOWN THEN EXPLAIN TO HIM THAT HE'S A DISGRACE TO THE ROYAL FAMILY. IN THE PAST IF ANYTHING ELSE LIKE THIS HAPPENED THEN THE TRANSGRESSOR WOULD BE GUIDED BY PROTOCOL FOR THE ROYALTY OF BRITAIN. GIVE HIM TWO ITEMS AS HE'S ONLY GOT TWO CHOICES AND THAT IS A BOTTLE OF WHISKY + A HAND GUN DO THE DECENT THING SHOOT HIMSELF BUT I DON'T THINK HE IS UP TO IT BUT IF HE DOESN'T THEN HE'LL HAVE TO TESTIFY IN THE USA AND RIGHTLY SO IF HE WANTS TO LIVE. I KNOW IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION BUT THE MEDIA WILL BRUTALISE THE ROYAL FAMILY ALSO AND FOR HIS SELF GRATIFICATION AND INDULGENCE IN NEFARIOUS GOINGS ON, SO HELP YOUR BROTHER TO MAKE THE CORRECT DECISION PRINCE CHARLES. BRITISH 1ST 🇬🇧 +ALWAYS WILL BE !
