Thanks to the sharp-eyed reader who pointed out that as of four hours ago Rupert Quaintance IV was posting on Twitter.
We can realistically predict two possibilities: either Rupert has been charged and released on bail, or he has been handed his belongings and put in the holding room for deportation.
We have absolutely no information to indicate which of these scenarios is correct (or whether it’s something else entirely).
We do note that Rupert’s erstwhile host, Adam Cheriton, posted on his Facebook page yesterday, “Er you fuckers have kept him here till new years at least lol”. This could possibly indicate that charges have been laid, or Mr Cheriton could have been engaging in a bit of hyperbole.
We will continue to update as information becomes available.
