The court then heard that a man called David Jenkins, who had just met the two girls, came to their defence. Jenkins said he had put Dappy in a headlock after the singer and his friends became aggressive towards the two girls. He claims a bigger fight then broke out which resulted in him being punched and losing some teeth.
