Professor Green has been charged with drink-driving relating to that incident back in November when the rap man called police to his Lewisham home claiming to have been mugged.

On arriving at the scene, police found that Green’s car had crashed into a van, and that the rapper himself, real name Stephen Manderson, was seemingly drunk. He was arrested at the time on suspicion of drink-driving and later rearrested over allegations of perverting the course of justice, presumably in relation to the original mugging claims.

Manderson was formally charged with drink-driving yesterday, though the Crown Prosecution Service has confirmed it is not proceeding with the perverting the course of justice claims.

A Met police spokesman told reporters: “Stephen Manderson, aged 30, of Tyrwhitt Road, has this evening been charged with drink-driving following an incident on 3 Nov. He will appear on bail at Bromley magistrates’ court on 20 Mar”.
