A 25 year old has gone on trial for allegedly slashing British rapper Professor Green's neck during a nightclub altercation last year (09).
Anthony Jones is accused of launching a "cowardly and vicious" assault on the star after he accidentally bumped into one of his pals, prosecutors told London's Snaresbrook Crown Court on Monday (18Oct10).
The rapper - real name Stephen Manderson - was left bleeding heavily from an open wound where his attacker stabbed him with a broken bottle.
Jones denies wounding with intent. The trial continues.
