Dappy and three other men have been charged with affray in relation to a fight that seemingly took place at a petrol station in Guildford in February.

The former N-Dubz star was arrested last month, at which time a Surrey Police spokeswoman explained the incident to reporters, saying: “Two girls and three men were outside the garage at 3.30am. They were interrupted by two suspects who had turned up in a car and asked the girls to go with them. The invitation was refused and one of the suspects then spat at one of the girls. As a result an altercation ensued involving the first two suspects and a further group of up to six black and white men who arrived in two further vehicles. The trio of men were assaulted and received serious facial injuries in the attack”.

Dappy, who denies the charges, and his fellow defendants have been bailed pending a hearing at Guildford Magistrates Court on 24 May. If found guilty the rapper faces a fine of up to £5000 and up to six months in jail.
