Dappy petrol station trial begins



Dappy was indicted on two counts of common assault and one of assault yesterday.

The rapper was appearing at Guildford Crown Court in relation to his previously reported arrest following a fight at a petrol station in the town last year. As previously reported, Dappy and three other men are accused of being involved in the incident, which took place in the early hours of 28 Feb.

Dappy is also charged with affray, and denies all charges. Two other defendants denied affray, while a fourth pleaded guilty to that charge and will be sentenced at the conclusion of the trial, which continues this morning.

Arriving at court yesterday Dappy tweeted a picture of himself looking sad. Make of that what you will.
