Court finds Dappy guilty of nightclub assault

By | Published on Friday 20 June 2014


One-time N-Dubz star Dappy has been found guilty of assaulting a man outside Chelmsford nightclub, Chicago’s.

The rapper, real name Costadinos Contostavlos, was handed an £800 fine over the incident, which took place in February of this year whilst Dapz was making a ‘PA’ at the nightspot. As previously reported, Dappy had denied slapping George Chittock, claiming that he had “moved him away” in self defence after his victim acted threateningly towards him.

Nevertheless, Contostavlos was convicted at Chelmsford Magistrates Court yesterday, the bench having watched a CCTV tape of the confrontation, and deemed that Dappy wasn’t in any physical danger when he hit Chittock.

This isn’t the first time Dappy has been involved in a spat of course. He and a pair of o-defendants were convicted of assault and affray last May following an altercation at a petrol station in Guildford. And he got kicked in the face by a horse that time. No arrests were made after that incident though.
