A chef who pulled a man’s trousers down in the beer garden of a Yorkshire pub has been ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register.

Chef Paul Peggs, 41, approached a 19-year-old man in the outdoor area of the Navigation Inn, Ripon, asked what his natural hair colour was before grabbing his jeans and pulling them down, the Yorkshire Press​ reported on Monday (20 September).

The pub’s staff described seeing the young man crying after the event, according to the local newspaper.

Ordered

Peggs was ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for five years, fined £750 compensation and £250 costs, and given a 12-month community order to complete 200 hours unpaid work.

Chef's 'lunge'

Earlier this year, pub chef Kyle Duff was arrested after quitting his job and “lunging” at a vehicle with a 12-inch knife​.

The prosecution reportedly claimed he was “so intoxicated he remembers little besides being in the back of a police van”.

Duff was given a suspended 12-month jail sentence after the court was told of his “serious problem” with alcohol.
