British pop star Lee Ryan has issued an apology after he went on a drunken naked rampage in a hotel in Scotland over the weekend (16-17Aug14).
The Blue singer is reported to have stripped off all his clothes and danced around nude in front of other guests during a night out at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow on Sunday (17Aug14).
An eyewitness tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "You don't expect somebody to start stripping naked in front of you, especially someone who's famous... His people got round him and hustled him away. Alcohol was certainly involved, he was absolutely blazing (drunk). He was making an a** of himself and didn't care."
A spokeswoman for the star says of the incident, "It goes without saying he is extremely shame-faced after a fun night out got out of hand," while a representative for Blue adds, "Lee apologises for any upset and inconvenience caused."
The incident comes just three months after Ryan, 30, was fined and banned from the roads for two years after pleading guilty to criminal damage and failing to co-operate during a drink-driving arrest.
He was accused of drunkenly yelling at police officers during the traffic stop in April (14) and of urinating in his cell after he was detained. He claimed to have organised a stint in rehab after the incident.
