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).
Swinton herself is an ex-boarding school pupil.
