Dane Bowers & Pal, accused of rape
REMEMBER when Dane Bowers was a popstar? Us neither. All we can ever remember is his various baffling TV appearances and that awful, awful video where he stuck his big toe up Katie Price’s doodah. Despite all this, Dane Bowels has managed to forge something of a career for himself, DJing in the backwaters of Britain for girls who want to shout “let me lick you up and down” at him.
However, there’s one woman who has a problem with the whole licking up and down thing, as the former member of Another Level and a male chum of his, were held by police on Tuesday after a woman claimed she was sexually attacked in a hotel room on Friday night.
Now, on Friday, Bowels was headlining a DJ set at Deco Lounge in Hertford. While there, he tweeted: “Getting funky in Deco Hertford…”. Very nice. The next morning, he added: “I feel great for not drinking last night! people tried to corrupt me I kept strong!!”
All the while, he was being accused of raping a woman, who gave detectives a video statement. As such, Dane attended Hatfield police station on Tuesday by prior appointment and was accused of conspiracy to rape. His friend was questioned on suspicion of rape. Mugshots, fingerprints and DNA was taken and both men deny the allegations and are now bailed until 14th May.
Hertfordshire Police told the Sun: “A 32-year-old man from Surrey presented himself at Hatfield police station by prior arrangement on April 3. The man has been arrested and is assisting police following an allegation of sexual assault.”
Following all this up, Dane sent a tweet to Nicola McLean saying he’d had “the worst day!!”, later adding: “I must have a f****** target on my back!! Jesus crist!! There’s a lot of Opportunistic f****** out there!!”
So, in the name of sensationalism, WHO DO YOU BELIEVE?
