LONDON (AP) — Two men have been sentenced in a British court for attacking a man while they were dressed as Oompa Loompas.
Louis Gelinas and Matthew Wright pleaded guilty to "affray" — or disturbing the peace — at an earlier hearing for their role in the attack in December 2012 that left a 28-year-old man with cuts and bruises.
Prosecutor Stephen Spence noted it was ironic the two were dressed as "peaceable characters" employed by Willy Wonka "to keep them away from trouble" in the novel "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."
Spence said "far from keeping out of trouble" the pair — both 20 — got into an abusive altercation.
Gelinas was sentenced Wednesday to 240 hours of community work and Wright was sentenced to 10 months in a young offenders' institute.
