Dane Bowers given conditional discharge after admitting to threatening Butlins staff in Bognor Regis
The singer was the headline act at a 90s-themed nightclub event when he shouted and swore at door staff
Dane Bowers – formerly of Another Level fame, now vaguely recognised from ITV show The Big Reunion – has been given a conditional discharged after he admitted to threatening door staff at the Butlins holiday camp club in Bognor Regis.
The singer was the headline act at a 90s-themed nightclub event at the resort in West Susses when the incident allegedly took place on 20 April 2013.
He apparently became enraged after his brother was refused entry to the club, and shouted and swore at the door staff.
The 34-year-old from Kingswood Way, Selsdon, Surrey pleaded guilty to abusive behaviour when he appeared before Chichester Magistrates' Court which was which, the court heard, was likely to cause alarm or distress.
Bowers had previously faced two charges of assault to which he pleaded not guilty. One of the charges had been replaced by the Section 5 public order offence, and the other charge was dismissed entirely.
He was given a 12-month conditional discharge and was ordered to pay £85 in court costs as well as a £15 victim surcharge.
David Symonds, the chairman of Chichester Magistrates' Court, said: “It is so fortunate this incident did not escalate any further and it was restricted to abuse.
“The offence is still serious by the virtue of the fact it was directed at people who were discharging their legitimate duties and they are entitled not to be the target of such behaviour.”
A case against Bowers’ brother Wade Bowers, 31, an electrician from Kingswood Way, South Croydon, has been adjourned to a future date.
