Ashley Walters, 33, actor and rapper with the So Solid Crew has been ordered to pay £1,000 after he aimed a foul-mouthed tirade at staff at the four-star Hilton hotel at the Business Design Centre last May.
Walters was there with his wife for their anniversary when he claimed to have been prevented from re-entering the hotel “because he was black”. A row broke out during which Walters told a female receptionist to “shut the f*** up”, and when she seemed visibly shaken that “You’d better be shivering, you bitch”. He also told the Hilton’s duty manager “Don’t say a word, I’ll knock you out, don’t interfere” and called both Hilton staff members “dickheads”.
Walters, who apologised for causing any problems was ordered to pay both victims £350, and £300 in court costs.
