Being an American I have never hear of this 'celebrity', but we have had similar incidents in the States.

Usually there is one law for us, and one law for celebrities.

Of course when rich celebrities are caught, we are told they are doing this for either the fun, the publicity, or blame themseves for having such a bad habit, and decide to go to a shrink.

Usually they get off very easily, whereas 'Joe public' gets the book thrown at them for stealing. We are told shoplifting has to be paid by the law abiding customers and adds around 5% extra per annum to your costs.

I wait to see if this guy just gets a slap on the wrist for being a bad boy, or an actual real punishment.

I've sure never heard of him. :/

This guy, he is not exactly poor, is he? He is also well-known, so unlike with 'normal' people, it would make the news. This could harm his reputation, so it is quite a bit risk. Especially when you consider that he could have easily afforded those items. I think he is telling the truth, seeing a psychologist to sort out his mental issues would be a good idea. Of course, that doesn't mean that he shouldn't receive the appropriate punishment for this crime (it's still a crime, although a minor one) first, i.e. a fine.

...Of course, that doesn't mean that he shouldn't receive the appropriate punishment for this crime (it's still a crime, although a minor one) first, i.e. a fine.Reading that article, it seems he stole over a period of time, so it was not a one off incident.

Yes, that is to be expected when he is indeed suffering from kleptomania or some other issue with kleptomanic 'traits'.

Was it at least quality wine? I can imagine getting busted over the cheap stuff to be even more humiliating.

I feel pretty safe...

I went through our self check out today and studied the false roof above the machines, and theres more cameras up there than roof :D

I just cannot understand how they let this guy through so many times without checking his bag, and give him a stern warning.

I realise they had to build a case up for him before being accused due to being some sort of celebrity, but you would have thought an assistant would have told him initially or the second time that we want to recheck the contents in your bag to make sure it adds up.

Seems they did not like him enough, and decided to (cook) book him :D

He said he hoped a psychoanalyst would help him discover what sent him "over the edge".

Nicking some cheap plonk and a bit of Stilton is going "over the edge" is it?
