Dappy found guilty of assaulting man at nightclub

Dappy has been fined £800 after being found guilty of assaulting a man at a nightclub earlier this year.

The rapper was charged with one count of assault by beating after allegedly striking George Chittock outside Chicago's in Chelmsford on February 27.

The 27-year-old, who lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire, pleaded not guilty to the charge. He said he lashed out in self-defence.

However, Chelmsford Magistrates' Court today (June 19) ruled that Dappy was guilty.

Prosecutor Jacqueline Carey told court: "It is no defence for anybody, celebrity or otherwise, to say 'I lashed out because he was rude to me'.

As well as the £800 fine, Dappy has been ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £930.

The musician's Celebrity Big Brother comrade Jim Davidson meanwhile appeared in court earlier this week to support friend.
