Oh, come on. It's not like he even did anything illegal. He's 17, while the minimum age in Britain is 16. He drank six bottles of Smirnoff Ice, which, at 5.0%, are basically beers. Do I approve? Of course not. Do I care? Of course not. It doesn't really even matter that people were snorting cocaine in the bathroom. That's what people do at a lot of clubs.
On the other hand, I suppose that this press is a small price to pay for living (literally) like a prince and not having to work.
UPDATE: Okay, I was wrong. He did do something illegal. The drinking age here is actually 18 (the age to buy tobacco is 16, which is where the confusion came from). Still, in the great scheme of things, it's not that bad.
