 British Rapper Fined For Spitting On Bouncer In Australia

British rapper Lady Sovereign was ordered Saturday to compensate a nightclub bouncer she had spat on. The bouncer had ordered her to leave the nightclub because she was drunk and disorderly.

The 23-year-old, whose real name is Louise Harman, had only been in the country seven hours when she got into a fight in the bathroom of a Brisbane city nightclub in the early hours of Saturday morning, the AAP newswire said.

Harman was "hysterical" as she was turfed from The Beat club by bouncers and "emotions got away on her," police told Brisbane Magistrates Court.

The court heard Harman was involved in an altercation in the club's upstairs bathroom about 12.30am (AEST) today, when she was asked to leave.

She exited alright, but returned briefly to spit in the bouncer's face. She couldn't get away with it though.

Harman was chased and pinned to the ground as she rushed out. Police checked the CCTV footage and laid the charges against her. She spent the night in the Brisbane police watchhouse.

She was dressed in prison browns, her hair messy, when she pleaded guilty to the charges.

Magistrate Brendan Butler said spitting had "serious health implications" and fined the singer 400 dollars, 200 of which he directed she pay to the bouncer as compensation. He did not record a conviction.

Harman is in Australia for the Parklife music festival, and she was to take the stage on Saturday afternoon.
