Jack Tweed, the Essex-born socialite and widower of late reality star Jade Goody, was told by a judge to "grow up" during his sentencing for common assault in court on Tuesday (16th August 2011). Tweed was given community service for punching a 21-year-old man outside a bar in Chigwell, reports Bbc News.
The 24-year-old was given an 18-month supervision order and will complete 100 hours of unpaid work - he was also told to pay six hundred and twenty five pounds in court costs. During the fight in January, Tweed also tried to kick his victim but missed on two occasions. Susan Mann, chair of the bench at Redbridge Magistrates Court told him, "You get yourself into trouble, you drink, you hit someone and try to kick them, that's not the answer... grow up, stop all this, move on". Tweed's brother, 21-year-old Lewis, also admitted common assault and was fined one hundred and thirty five pounds and must pay a further six hundred and twenty five pounds in costs. Jack married Big Brother star Goody in February 2009 - at the time she was terminally ill with cancer and died exactly one month later.
Tweed is best friends with the reality star Mark Wright, who appears on the hit Itv2 show 'The Only Way is Essex'.
