Singer Johnson Cleared Over Soccer Star Dispute

British singer MATTHEW JOHNSON has been ordered to make peace with his soccer star neighbour after a dispute over a fence left him facing criminal charges.
The One True Voice star, who rose to fame alongside Cheryl Cole on 2002 reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals, reportedly became engaged in a feud with Welsh sportsman Kevin Ratcliffe over a large fence which was built in between their two homes.
Johnson allegedly rang Ratcliffe "ranting and raving", while prosecutor Alun Humphries told Mold Crown Court in Wales that during the call, the singer threatened "I will get you shot".
The 25 year old denied one charge of making a menacing call and his lawyer claimed both men had been "trading insults", reports Britain's The Sun.
The charge was dismissed on Thursday (20Jan11) but Johnson was hit with a good behaviour order - he was bound over to keep the peace with Ratcliffe, meaning they must put the feud behind them.
Speaking after the hearing, the singer told reporters, "I am extremely pleased with the outcome."
