Boy George Arrested

BOY George has been arrested after a male escort claimed the gay singer chained him to a wall.

Auden Carlsen, 28, said he had gone back to George's flat after agreeing to pose for photos.
But once there he claims he was grabbed by the 45-year-old ex-Culture Club star and another man and shackled to a wall.

Carlsen says he fled in his underpants after wrenching a hook from the wall of the flat in Shoreditch, East London. He rang police from a local newsagent on Saturday morning.

Carlsen says he met George on the Gaydar website - a dating service for gay men - but only agreed to visit the flat at midnight as a £400 photographic model and not as an escort. Norwegian Carlsen said: "I was convinced I was going to die.

"George handcuffed me to a hook by the bed as they held me down."

A Met police spokeswoman said: "We investigated reports of an alleged forced imprisonment and common assault made by a 28-year-old man. A man in his 40s was arrested in connection with the investigation."

George has been bailed to appear before magistrates
