Stuart Mills could face 2 years in jail or $5,000 fine after alleged altercation with security guard

Singapore-based ad industry creative Stuart Mills, who was caught on camera earlier this month in an alleged altercation with a security guard, appeared before court in Singapore today.

If convicted of assault Mills, who is a Singapore permanent resident, could face up to two years in jail and a maximum fine of S$5,000 – in relation to the incident involving the security guard Andrew Lim.

If convicted of harassing Lim, Mills could be fined up to S$5,000 or be jailed for up to six months, or both.

Mills is scheduled to return to court on May 15.

He has worked with several ad agencies including TBWA, Cheil, SapientNitro, Bates CHI and Ogilvy & Mather.

Mills first moved to Singapore in 2005 with Ogilvy and was most recently with TBWA – leaving his role as global creative director at the agency back in May 2018.

He is believed to have been freelancing ever since, although there are reports that he started his own agency during that period.

Mills had previously won industry awards at shows including Cannes, D&AD, Adfest, Spikes, the Clio Awards and the World Press Awards.
