Boy George charged with false imprisonment

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.
