A father accused of attacking British TV star Elliott Tittensor has pleaded guilty to the offence after admitting he "lost his temper".
John Flint was arrested in November (10) after allegedly punching Tittensor outside a London court just minutes after the Shameless star was fined $1,200 (£750) for his part in a car accident which left Flint's son Oliver with serious injuries.
The teenager was hurt when Tittensor's car crashed into him in August (10), although an attempted murder investigation was dropped and the star was charged with driving without insurance.
John Flint appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Tuesday (22Mar11) and admitted to a charge relating to fear or provocation of violence.
Flint, who represented himself, says, "I apologise to the court. I just lost my temper. I saw his face smiling outside of the court. I'm not going to pay him one penny of compensation. I'll pay the court, but not him."
He was warned he will face a sentence of unpaid work when he appears in court again next month (Apr11).
