Briton held over Donald Trump gun incident pleads guilty to lesser charges


20-year-old British man accused of attempting to shoot Donald Trump at a Las Vegas casino has pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

Michael Sandford, of Dorking, Surrey, was due to stand trial over an incident at a rally on June 18 in which he allegedly tried to grab a policeman’s gun to attack the Republican presidential candidate.

He appeared at the US District Court in Nevada on Tuesday to enter his plea to the US federal charges of being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting an official function.
