Darren Hayes Cautioned After Arrest

Darren Hayes has been issued with a formal caution following his recent arrest on suspicion of racial abuse.

Darren admitted he argued with a member of staff at the Busaba Eathai restaurant, but denied the row had a racist element.

“I could never think, let alone utter a racist remark,” Darren said on his website.

“As a gay man, I find the notion of discriminating against a human being because of race, gender or sexuality to be abhorrent. It goes against everything I have stood for.”

He added that “any notion of racism had been ruled out” by police, but according to the BBC a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police would not confirm this.

    I think its incorrect to pass a judgement on this issue, till the time we know what exactly Darren said. Let the verbatim come into picture first and hopefully and surely, as per the image of the artist, I opine this intire incident to be, probably a faux pas.
    I believe he is innocent. If he can write real sentiments, he’d definitely not abuse a persone on the basis of his race, gender, religion or nationality.
