N-Dubz rapper Dappy sparked a "mob attack" at a petrol station when he spat at two girls who refused to get into a car with him and two friends, a court has heard.
Prosecutors said the 25-year-old singer spat at and insulted the girls after they turned down the invite at a Shell garage in Guildford, Surrey, in the early hours of February 28 last year, before spitting at another man, David Jenkins, who had defended them.
Prosecuting barrister Brian Stork told the jury at Guildford Crown Court that Dappy swung a punch at Mr Jenkins, which launched the "mob-handed, utterly unlawful and aggressive attack."
Two other men, Kieran Vassell and Alfred Miller, who had arrived in a second Mercedes car with other unidentified men, joined the attack, he said. Mr Stork showed the jury brief CCTV footage from the garage of the brawl.
Dappy, who is charged under his real name of Costadinos Contostavlos, denies two counts of common assault on the two women, one of assault by beating, of Mr Jenkins, and one of affray. The trial continues.
