Dappy has been arrested for allegedly threatening a woman and carrying a knife. According to The Sun, the police were called Roe Green Close, Hatfield, yesterday (10 May) following an altercation outside Dappy’s family home. After learning the police had been called, the rapper reportedly shouted: “I’ll stab the Old Bill in the face.”

Dappy was allegedly then arrested “on suspicion of assault ABH and possession of an offensive weapon in a public space” and was taken into custody for questioning.

Another onlooker told the BBC: “There was an incident, a guy and a woman. Three or four students came to her aid. I got that information from one of the students involved in it – he was standing outside and he explained what had happened.

“Ten police cars turned up outside and they were out there for getting on a hour. At one point there were three or four armed policemen standing at the door with one of them shouting instructions through the open door. One went in with two backing him up and one on the driveway was crouching behind a car.”
