Ronson To Be Prosecuted Over Onstage Cigarette?

Superproducer MARK RONSON is facing prosecution after he was caught smoking onstage at a gig last weekend (28-29Jun08).
The Grammy-winner was performing at Britain's Wakestock Festival in the grounds of Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England on Saturday (28Jun08) night but he broke the U.K.'s strict no smoking laws by sparking a cigarette up during the concert.
And now West Oxfordshire District have confirmed they have launched an investigation into the allegations and will be examining photo evidence of the gig.
A council spokeswoman tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "Our environmental health department will be investigating it and meeting with organisers and reviewing what went on. We can't say now whether we're prosecuting him (Ronson) or not."
If he is prosecuted over the offence, Ronson will receive a minor $100 (GBP50) penalty but the event's organiser will be fined $5,000 (GBP2,500).
