Ex-Verve Frontman Arrested for Disorderly Conduct

Richard Ashcroft, former Verve frontman, was arrested on Monday (June 19) after allegedly bursting into a British youth club in an intoxicated state, demanding to be allowed to work with the troubled youth, and refusing to leave. The club’s staff called the police and Ashcroft was taken into custody, fined for disorderly conduct, and released, according to U.K. tabloid The Sun. One of the nearly 60 teens hanging out at the Wiltshire club told the paper Ashcroft “looked like a tramp. He was disheveled and unshaven,” while another said he “wasn’t aggressive” and “kept hugging some staff and kids,” saying that he “wanted to work with the kids, that he wanted to do ‘good things.'”
