Crime: Attempting to throw a Navy officer overboard and not paying fines

While he was a teenager in the Royal Navy, Duncan Bannatyne spent six months in Colchester military prison for attempting to throw a commanding officer overboard. Banatyne explained that he thought the officer was an arrogant bully and I was not prepared to stand there and take his abuse , and that he also tried to discharge himself from the Navy.

He later spent ten days in Glasgow’s Barlinnie prison for not paying a 10 fine in relation to a charge of breach of peace and resisting arrest.

Due to his lack in qualifications, no references and criminal record, Bannatyne found it difficult to find work. After a stint as a deck chair assistant in Jersey, he decided to start hiw own company. The rest is history and look at where he is now!
