Former N-Dubz man Dappy charged with affray over petrol station brawl
Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has been charged with affray over a brawl that took place at a petrol station in Guildford.

Dappy, real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, has been charged along with fellow defendants Kalonji Stewart, Kieran Vassell and Alfred Miller.

All of the men have has been bailed and will appear before Guildford Magistrates Court on May 24. If convicted, Dappy faces a fine of up to £5,000 and potentially up to six months in prison. He has since 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 'Dare To Dream', which will be released later this year. He tours the UK in September.
