It has been reported by Spinner that Lady Sovereign was detained in Australia over the weekend after she spat at a nightclub doorman. Lady Sovereign arrived in Australia on the Friday to perform on Saturday at the Parklife Festival Tour. After pounding back a few at the popular Brisbane-area gay nightclub Beat, she was arrested for an altercation with the nightclub doorman.
On Saturday Lady Sovereign pleaded guilty to both assault and disorderly conduct in court. She was fined $400 Australian and forced to pay $200 to the doorman. Although the judge did not convict the rapper, he schooled her on the “serious health implications” that spitting has in public.
Even though she was reprimanded, she still managed to make her afternoon slot at the Parklife Festival. Shortly after, Lady Sovereign took to her Twitter account and slammed the local Brisbane law enforcement.
“Brisbane police need to go catch some real criminals … What a waste,” she wrote. “Spitting in someone’s face is nasty, but how about a guy dressed up as a girl running at you in the toilets and punching you in the head? Yes, that’s what happened prior to the spitting. So everyone please stop calling me nasty.
“If you was there you would understand,” she further explained. “The transvestite must have been a regular because I didn’t see no one dragging his ass out of the club that night.”
Not so tough in person, just on Twitter! Lady Sovereign just grow up.
