Dappy denies three assault charges in court
Jan 8, 2013, 9:01 GMT
N-Dubz star Dappy has denied three charges of assault in court.
The 25-year-old rapper appeared in Guildford Crown Court, Surrey, yesterday (07.01.13), wearing a woolly hat with the title of his album 'Bad Intentions' on it, over a fight that took place at a Shell petrol station last February.
He is accused of attacking Grace Elizabeth Cochran, 18, and Serena Burton, 18, and beat David Jenkins, 23, at the garage before another group of men arrived - leading to an altercation in which the man along with the girls received facial injuries.
Dappy - whose real name is Costadinos Contostavlos - denied all charges against him when speaking in the dock.
The other men in the dock, dad-of-two Kieran Patrick Vassell, 25, and Kalonji David Stewart, 32, each denied a single count of affray, while another man Alfred James Miller, 28, pleaded guilty to a charge of affray.
Dappy's trial has been adjourned until this morning (08.01.13), where prosecutor Brian Stork will deliver his opening statement against the accused.
The N-Dubz star - whose cousin is 'X Factor' judge Tulisa - appeared in court last May after the incident took place at the garage on Woodbridge Road, Guildford, on February 28 and has pleaded his innocence ever since then.
Writing to his fans on Twitter at the time, Dappy said: 'Apparently i got arrested 4 talking 2 someones girlfriend in a P station.
'Surrey police, i beg u leak that cctv footage u showed me in that stinking interview room just 2 show the world that im completely innocent.
'Bunch of liars...Nooooo evidence u scums...F..k Feds..Love u fans x (sic)'
