Happy Mondays star BEZ has been released from prison after serving just two weeks of a month-long sentence.
The British dancer/percussionist walked free from Strangeways detention centre in Manchester, England on Wednesday (08Sep10), shouting: "See you later, lads!"
And when asked if he was relieved to be out, he told reporters: "No, I wish I was still in there!"
The rocker, real name Mark Berry, was jailed last month (Aug10) for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Monica Ward, in a domestic dispute.
He stayed true to his hellraiser reputation when a judge sentenced him to community service, telling her: "I'm not doing it. (I'm not) bothered. I'm going to appeal and take this to a real court."
Bez was jailed for one month and was said to have cried out, "Victory is in my grasp!" as he was handcuffed and taken away to the cells.
