Dane Bowers pleads guilty over holiday camp bust-up

Feb 12, 2014 | 5:07am EST

British singer Dane Bowers has been given a conditional discharge after he admitted threatening staff at a U.K. holiday camp. The former Another Level star was charged with assault last year (13) over allegations he was involved in a brawl at Butlins holiday camp in Bognor Regis, England. He pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault, but struck a deal with prosecutors on the day his trial at Chichester Magistrates' Court in England was due to start. On Tuesday (11Feb14), Bowers, 34, pleaded guilty to a charge of using threatening or abusive behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress. He was given a 12-month conditional discharge, meaning he will not face further punishment as long as he abides by the court's conditions. He was also ordered to pay $136 (£85) in costs and $24 (£15) to a fund for victims of crime. The news comes as pop star Bowers prepares to make a music comeback as part of new supergroup 5th Story on British reality TV show The Big Reunion along with Kavana, Gareth Gates, Adam Rickett and Kenzie.
