[ # ] WTF Darren Hayes arrested over verbal racist attack?
August 21st, 2007 under Darren Hayes

Darren Hayes (best known as the singer from Savage Garden) was arrested in London over an alleged verbal racist attack at a Thai restaurant according to News.com.au.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We can confirm that a 35-year-old man was arrested by Westminster police on suspicion of racially abusing a member of staff.

"He was arrested after voluntarily attending a Central London police station by appointment. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries, until the 21st of September.”

Darren Hayes' people confirm the arrest on his MySpace blog, but deny the allegation.

A Statement from Darren's solicitor

"Darren is unable to comment to any extent as the incident is presently under investigation by the police, with whom he has cooperated fully.
However he is deeply upset at the allegation which he strenuously denies and anyone who knows Darren will recognise that the particular nature of the allegation is totally abhorrent to him and contrary to everything for which he has stood"

I just don't understand how someone is arrested for a verbal not physical racist attack. Especially the man that dreamed up I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You. I hope he is cleared from this stupid charge.
