Shakin’ Stevens charged with assault!

Welsh pop singer SHAKIN' STEVENS appeared in court in Ireland on Wednesday to answer accusations of assault over an alleged attack on a photographer.

The 80s star, real name Michael Barrett, was performing at the Tullyglass Hotel in County Antrim, Ireland last December when he allegedly pushed his microphone into Hugo McNeice's camera and broke it.

The 61 year old, who denies assault, attended a hearing at Ballymena Magistrates Court in County Antrim to give evidence in connection with the case.
