Metropolitan Police, called to Busaba Eathai restuarant, arrested someone who sounds a lot like Darren Hayes:
"He was arrested after voluntarily attending a Central London police station by appointment. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries, until the 21st of September."
Today, though, Darren Hayes' lawyers have issued a statement which says he's innocent:
“However he is deeply upset at the allegation which he strenuously denies and anyone who knows Darren will recognise that the particular nature of the allegation is totally abhorrent to him and contrary to everything for which he has stood.”
As Drowned In Sound point out, that's quite verbose for someone who is "unable to comment". And since when did being accused of something mean you couldn't say "I'm innocent" - especially when you haven't been charged with anything.
There's also something slightly ominous in the use of past tense there - "contrary to everything for which he has stood". A slight air of "if those downtrodden people think I'm sticking up for them again after this..." which we're sure the spokesperson didn't intend.
