Ferry's Son Arrested After Election
Rocker BRYAN FERRY's son was arrested this morning (6MAY05) after confronting and verbally abusing British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR following his victory in yesterday's (5MAY05) General Election.
OTIS FERRY - a fox-hunting campaigner angry after the Labour government banned the blood sport - lunged at Blair and his wife CHERIE outside London's National Portrait Gallery after Labour won their third term in power.
Plain-clothed police officers stepped in and dragged Ferry and a second man away. They were arrested and held for alleged public order offences.
A police spokesperson says, "Two males aged 20 and 22 were arrested at 6.15 am (BST) today for breach of the peace at the National Portrait Gallery."
Last September (04), 22-year-old Ferry was arrested by police after breaking through security at the Houses Of Parliament with seven others and interrupting a fox hunting debate.06/05/2005 17:06
