Former England soccer star PAUL GASCOIGNE was reprimanded by a magistrate on Wednesday (03Nov10) after laughing during a court hearing.
The troubled sportsman was arrested by police in February (10), along with his friend Michael Harvey, on suspicion of being drunk in charge of a vehicle.
Just a day later, the pair was arrested by cops once again for a public order offence in Darlington, north England.
Gascoigne denies a charge of being four times over the legal limit and appeared at Northallerton Magistrates' Court in North Yorkshire, England on Wednesday - but the star's behaviour at the hearing left bench chairman Nigel Tapley far from impressed.
He slammed the sportsman for giggling as charges were read out, telling him: "These are very serious matters Mr Gascoigne - very serious."
The case has been adjourned until next month (Dec10).
Gascoigne is already facing jail over his arrest for driving under the influence last month (Oct10).
