Rapper Dizzee Rascal has been arrested following an incident with a baseball bat, police have reportedly confirmed.

Reports claim that the Dizzee – real name Dylan Mills – was detained on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon in Sevenoaks, Orpington, Kent at around 15:30 GMT on Friday.

The 24-year-old was released on bail to return to a south London police station later this month.

The British rapper won the Mercury Music Prize in 2003 for his debut album Boy in da Corner and recently had his first UK number one single with Dance Wiv Me.
