Professor Green

Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, was arrested last week on drink driving charges. Ironically, Green was the one to call the police, summoning officers to his south London home to report he’d been mugged and his Rolex stolen in the early hours of the morning.

On reaching the scene police, though, discovered Green’s car had been involved in a crash with a van, and took the rapper into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Scotland Yard has issued a statement that reads: “The suspected driver of the car, a 29 year old man, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and taken into custody at a South London police station. There were no reports of any injured parties. Inquiries into the robbery and the collision are ongoing”.
