Ringo Starr's grandson and Liam Gallagher's son have been charged for allegedly assaulting convenience store workers in London.

Appearing at the Wood Green Magistrates Court on Friday, Gene Gallagher, 19, Starr's grandson Sonny Starkey, 19, and pal Noah Ponte, 20, pleaded not guilty to various charges arising from the incident which took place in May 2019 at a Tesco Express store in Hampstead, north London.

The brawl erupted after Ponte allegedly stole a beer from the store, according to The Sun. Ponte then reportedly yelled at a South Asian shop worker, "You bloody Indians. Go back to where you came from. You're not wanted here."

A fight erupted involving the three and members of the shop's staff before leaving the store. Gallagher and Starkey are accused of "windmilling" down the aisle at one shopkeeper.

Gallagher, Starkey, and Ponte are charged with affray, while Gallagher and Ponte are also accused of racially aggravated assault, The Sun noted. Ponte is additionally facing charges of theft and assault while Starkey is facing two charges of assault.

The incident was captured by CCTV, making the case "very factually straightforward," prosecutor Alexander Agbamu told Wood Green Crown Court at an earlier hearing in March, reported Metro. "Nothing that hasn’t been captured on cameras can be given in evidence by witnesses," Agbamu added. "We’re looking at a trial of between seven and eight days, all defendants being on bail."

The trial will begin on Jan. 18. The trio were unconditionally bailed until then.
