Boy George ARRESTED on Kidnapping Charges!
Boy George laughed off claims he imprisoned a male escort in his flat.
The former Culture Club singer was arrested on Saturday (28.04.07) after Auden Carlsen alleged George and another man had grabbed him and chained him to a wall in the star's East London home.
However, George has told brother Kevin O'Dowd he finds the allegations "hilarious" and is not concerned by them.
Kevin said: "George isn't at all annoyed at the allegations, in fact, he thinks it's hilarious.
"Yeah, he was arrested, but the police are always going to follow it up when someone makes a complaint like that."
Carlsen - who claimed he had agreed to pose for photos for the 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me' singer and was not working as an escort - says he pulled the hook from the wall and fled in his underwear before phoning the police from a nearby newsagents.
George was later arrested and taken to a police station. He was bailed by detectives probing assault and false imprisonment allegations.
George and Carlsen met on the gay dating website Gaydar where the 28-year-old Norwegian allegedly offers his services as a £400 a night escort.
