Singer allegedly chains man to wall

Boy George has been charged with false imprisonment.

The 80s pop icon was charged today (November 13) after he allegedly chained a man to a wall at his London home earlier this year.

Boy George, real name George O’Dowd, was released on police bail and is scheduled to appear in court on November 22.

A police spokeswoman said : “George O’Dowd … is charged with false imprisonment of a 28-year-old male … on April 28, 2007.”

The former Culture Club frontman was arrested in May after a man accused him of “false imprisonment and common assault”, reports Reuters.
