Saint outburst DJ sentenced

A wayward presenter who burst into the studios of Southampton radio station The Saint and subjected listeners to an obscene rant has been sentenced to 120 hours community service and banned from driving for three years.

Southampton Magistrates' Court heard how Rob Flood, who used the on-air pseudonym Rob Stevens when presenting the station's drive time slot, stormed the studio after the company's Christmas party in December, claiming he needed to sleep in the building to present the next morning's 6am breakfast show.

The mic was brought up and a scuffle ensued, in which Flood announced the name and frequency of the station before repeatedly asking the security guard throwing him out "what have I done to you guys?" and "what have I done to get you so f*cking sh*t up?". He asked for the guard's name and proclaimed that it would be "in the Radio Magazine".

After being ejected from the St. Mary's stadium from which The Saint broadcasts, the presenter then broke into his own car using a bollard and drove it into the studio doors, causing around £3,000 worth of damage.

As well as being sentenced to community service, Flood was also ordered to pay £1,000 compensation to The Saint's owner, Southampton Football Club, and £70 costs.
