Coldplay’s Chris Martin has been arrested in the land of kangaroos for allegedly smashing a freelance journalist’s car window.
Photographer Jon Lister, alleges that Martin demanded he erase pictures of the Coldplay crew surfing at Seven Mile Beach from his digital camera, then hurled a rock at the window of Lister’s Jeep before letting down the tyres.
Arrested at his hotel later that day and charged with malicious damage, the New South Wales police confirmed Martin will appear at the Byron Bay Magistrates’ Court on 8th October.
