Crazy Town singer Shifty Shellshock has been convicted of cocaine possession and domestic violence charges against his girlfriend.

The singer, whose real name is Seth Binzer, entered a plea of no contest in court on Tuesday (July 31) and was sentenced to three years probation.

Shellshock has since issued a public apology for his behaviour, telling US gossip website TMZ: "I would like to sincerely apologise to the parties involved. I feel very bad for those who I have offended and those who have endured this situation."

The singer's representative also spoke on his behalf and said that he was confident that he had now turned up his life around. They added: "Seth has completely changed his life around and has checked into a highly regarded drug and alcohol treatment center where he will be working with them to restructure his life over the next two years."

Shellshock was originally arrested in February when a Los Angeles shop employee spotted him fighting with his girlfriend and called the police. When police arrived they searched the singer and found cocaine on his person.

The singer has suffered from a number of high-profile substance abuse problems and appeared on US reality shows Celebrity Rehab and Sober House to seek treatment for drug addiction.

Crazy Town are thought to be working on their third studio album and follow-up to their 2002 effort 'Dark Horse' but, despite a new track titled 'Come Inside' leaking online last year, there have been no new details about the LP.
