|Brentford Man Charged With Pink Beret Theft|
Allegedly stole hat from Eddie Izzard during pro-EU march
A Brentford man has been charged with the attempted theft of Eddie Izzard’s pink beret after an incident at a pro-EU demonstration this weekend (3 September).
26-year-old David Czerwonko of Clitherow Road, Brentford, was filmed snatching the beret from the comedian’s head who set off in pursuit of him in high heels along Whitehall near Downing Street.
Mr Czerwonko was caught and then restrained by a group of policemen. He has been bailed until 19 September when he is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court. The beret is being retained by police as evidence in the case.
Earlier Eddie Izzard had addressed a rally in Parliament Square alongside Peter Tatchell.
