Former N-Dubz man Dappy to stand trial over petrol station assault
Former N-Dubz singer Dappy will stand trial over the charges of affray from a brawl that took place at a petrol station in Guildford, it has been confirmed today (August 24).

Dappy, real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, will face the charges with fellow defendants Kalonji Stewart, Kieran Vassell and Alfred Miller. All four men appeared at Guildford Crown Court today and have pleaded not guilt.

If convicted, Dappy faces a fine of up to £5,000 and potentially up to six months in prison. He has protested his innocence in several tweets and has branded his accusers as "a bunch of liars".

The incident itself took place on February 28 at 3.30am. Dappy and one of the other defendants allegedly got out of their car and approached a group of two girls and three men and asked the women to join them in their car.

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.

Dappy is currently readying his debut solo album 'Bad Intentions', which will be released in October. He tours the UK in December.
