STOKE, UNITED KINGDOM, FEBRUARY 26, 2013:
FILE PICTURE – Ashley Cicatello pictured arriving at Stoke on Trent Crown Court. See NTI story NTITURBAN. A drunk yob ripped a Sikh supermarket worker’s turban off his head for a JOKE causing the victim to be ostracised from his own community, a court heard. Ashley Cicatello (corr), 25, had spent the afternoon drinking beer and Jager Bomb shots when he spotted the victim in a Sainsbury’s supermarket on December 27, last year. He told pals: “Get this on record. This is going on YouTube” before running up behind the victim and yanking the turban off his head. Cicatello then sprinted off with it and was chased through the store before being wrestled to the ground by security guards. He later admitted to police that he had “been an absolute prat” and had done it because he wanted to be the “class clown.” JPs were told the Sikh father-of-two has since transferred stores after being being too ashamed to return to work.
