Jamie T has been cleared of grevious bodily harm after punching a man who stole his drink.

The singer appeared at the Old Bailey yesterday (March 3) to answer charges relating to an incident that took place in a bar in Brixton, south London last May.

A jury ruled that the singer, appearing under his real name Jamie Treays, had acted in self-defence after another man, Giles Curties, 39, lunged at him, reports the Daily Mirror.

The altercation at the Windmill began after Curties took the singer's drink, then reacted angrily when Treays tried to take it back. The court heard that Treays feared Curties was going to headbutt him.

Judge Giles Forrester said: "The defendant told the man that it was his beer. The man replied, 'No, it's not' with a cheeky grin."

Curties needed surgery to treat a double jaw fracture as a result of the incident.
