N-Dubz Dappy has been found guilty of assault and affray today at Guildford Magistrates Court for the brawl at a petrol station in Guildford.
The fight broke out on 28 February 2012, the same night the 25-year-old rapper was celebrating the release of his single Rockstar featuring Queen guitarist Brian May.
After spending the night in the VIP area of the Casino nightclub in Guildford, Dappy and his crew headed back to the recording studio in Godalming. They then stopped at a Shell petrol garage in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, at around 3.30am.
Prosecutor, Brian Stork, told the court that Dappy then approached Grace Cochran and Serena Burton, both 19 at the time, whilst they sat on the curb outside the garage shop.
Dappy then apparently tried to persuade the girl to get into the car with him so they could continue their celebrations back at the studio.
The girl refused Dappy’s advances and began to ridicule him, saying they didn’t know who he was.
The court was told that Dappy became angry and called the girls ‘sluts’, spitting at them.
Mr Stork continued to tell the court that a man who was talking to the girls previously, David Jenkins, then stepped in to ‘protect’ them.
At this point Dappy spat at Mr Jenkins and held him in a headlock leading to the fight which included two other defendants, Kieran Vassell, 25, of Hammersmith, west London, and Kalonji Stewart, 32, of Harborne, Birmingham, who were both charged with affray.
A fourth man, Alfred Miller, 28, of Brentford, west London, has pleaded guilty to affray and his case was adjourned for sentence at the end of the trial.
Mr Jenkins suffered several broken teeth, whilst his friends, Oliver Billson and Christopher Gibson, received a swollen eye and a broken nose.
Throughout the trial Dappy continued to deny all claims made against him but it was DNA evidence found on Mr Jenkins’ shirt that proved that Dappy had in fact spat at him.
Details of sentencing have not been released but when we know we’ll update this story.
