Professor Green

Professor Green has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

The rapper, whose real name is Stephen Manderson, was held after police were sent to reports of a robbery in south-east London.

Officers had been called about a suspected mugging at about 2.40am on Sunday 3 November.

When they arrived at the scene they found the 29-year-old's car had been in a crash with a van.

Professor Green was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving at the time and released on bail.

He was then arrested again on Monday on suspicion of lying to the police.

A spokesman from London's Metropolitan Police said: "He has been bailed to a date in January pending further inquiries."

Professor Green recently married Millie Mackintosh, star of reality TV show Made in Chelsea.

Earlier this year he was involved in a car accident.

He said it left his health and album/touring schedule "in absolute jeopardy".
