Boy George Arrested On False Imprisonment Charges
80's popstar BOY GEORGE has been arrested on suspicion of assault and false imprisonment charges.
The singer has been accused of kidnapping male escort Auden Carlsen and chaining him to the wall of his east London, England flat on Saturday (28Apr07).
Carlsen claims he was hired by Boy George - real name George O'Dowd - to go to the singer's flat at the early hours of Saturday morning to pose for photos.
The ex-Culture Club star started taking pictures of him in kinky gear - but Carlsen claims he feared for his life soon afterwards.
He says, "George said he was popping out for milk at 5 am. I heard him come back and I walked into his bedroom wearing just my T-shirt. I was jumped on by George and another man.
"George handcuffed me to a hook by the bed as they held me down."
Carlsen accuses the singer of producing a box of sex toys and whips when the other man left, telling him, "Now you'll get what you deserve."
The escort managed to free himself by pulling the hooks from the wall and alerted the police from a nearby newsagent.
He adds, "It's ironic that his biggest hit was Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - because I'm sure he did want to hurt me.
"I was convinced I was going to die."
The singer has been bailed while detectives probe the allegations.
O'Dowd received community service last year (06) in New York when police found cocaine in his apartment.
