Murdoch Pie Thrower Has His Day in Court

Jul 29, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The man who threw a foam pie in the face of Rupert Murdoch while the News Corp. chairman and CEO was testifying last week before a House of Commons panel has had his day in court, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jonathan May-Bowles — also known as Jonnie Marbles — pleaded guilty to the charges against him: assault and causing harassment, alarm and distress, the story says. He is due to be sentenced Aug. 2.

The 26-year-old May-Bowles, who describes himself as a comedian, used the appearance to make another attempt at humor. He aped Murdoch’s testimony before the parliamentary panel when he said while leaving the court, "I’d just like to say that this is the most humble day of my life."
