Just when we thought Dappy was changing, he’s only gone and gotten himself charged with assault.

The incident happened after the 26-year-old performed at Chicago’s nightclub in Essex. Police said the attack took place in the early hours of the morning.

It’s not yet clear how or why the incident started, maybe someone made reference to his low IQ after that embarrassing scene in the Big Brother diary room?

Dappy’s friends claim he acted in self defence, something he didn’t do when he was attacked by that horse

The former N-Dubz star is no stranger to arrests. In 2013 he was found guilty of assault and affray in connection with a brawl at a petrol station in Guildford. He was given a six-month sentence, suspended for 18 months, and made to carry out 150 hours of community service.

An Essex Police spokesman said:

Costadinos Contostavlos, aged 26, from Sandridge, St Albans, has been charged with an assault by beating following an incident outside a nightclub in Moulsham Street in Chelmsford in the early hours of February 27.

He has been released on bail prior to his appearance at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on March 19
