Gene Gallagher, 19, and Beatles drummer Ringo Starr's grandson Sonny Starkey, 19, and IMG model Noah Ponte, 20, are accused of fighting in a Tesco Express store in Hampstead, north London.

Ponte allegedly stole a can of beer at midnight after the shop had stopped selling alcohol, an earlier hearing was told.
