Hurst charged with criminal damage
Lee due in court on New Year's Eve
Police have brought charges against the comedian for allegedly grabbing a £300 phone from a comedy club punter and smashing it on the floor.
The former star of They Think It’s All Over star is said to have flipped after spotting a man sending a text at the You Must Be Stoking club in Guildford in September.
At the time, one punter accused Hurst of going ‘ballistic’ and storming off stage. He is said to have raged: ‘I’m fed up with you fucking people filming me and putting it on YouTube.’
Hurst is due to appear at Guildford Magistrates' Court on December 31.
