Wild boyband star Lee Ryan had to be pulled away from a fight by Blue bandmate Antony Costa after getting into a drunken altercation with two men in a London bar on Monday night (19APR04).

The ALL RISE singer got into a violent argument with the men after drunkenly dancing on the bar of the DINING ROOM in Islington, where he was attending a charity event.

An eye witness reports, "Lee was pretty drunk and was dancing on top of the bar. He was told to get down and as he did he kicked a bloke standing at the bar.

"Lee got very verbal with this guy and wouldn't apologise. He was also squaring up to his mate. They were all squaring up to each other and sizing one another up.

"It got into a scuffle and Antony had to drag Lee away."
