Former N-Dubz man Dappy arrested after petrol station brawl
Singer is arrested over an incident that took place in Guildford back in February
Former N-Dubz mainman Dappy has been arrested in connection with a brawl that took place at a petrol station in Guildford.
The wannabe rapper was with an unnamed friend and reportedly pulled up at a Shell petrol station in Surrey on February 28 at 3.30am. The pair allegedly got out of their cars and approached a group of two girls and three men and asked the women to join them in their car.
According to the Daily Mirror, when the pair's request was refused, one of them allegedly spat at the women. At this point, another group of up to six men in two cars arrived, leading to a full-scale brawl in which the three men who were with the women were assaulted and received serious facial injuries.
A spokesman for Surrey Police said of the incident: "Police are investigating an incident which happened on the forecourt of the Shell garage in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, on Tuesday, February 28. Three men were assaulted and received serious facial injuries in the attack. A 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old man were both arrested on suspicion of affray."
A spokesman for Dappy, whose real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, has refused to comment on the situation.
Dappy is currently readying his debut solo album 'Dare To Dream', which will be released later this year. He tours the UK in September.
