The 25-year-old, from Bessacarr in Doncaster, was arrested after the alleged clash at Los Angeles International Airport on March 3, when he was travelling with his girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

The couple had been returning to Los Angeles after a holiday in Las Vegas when he allegedly clashed with the photographer. The singer's lawyer claims he was provoked.

An arrest record showed the singer was held under citizen's arrest and the alleged offence was classed as a misdemeanour.
