Liam escapes charges after pub arrest

Liam Gallagher: Alleged to have damaged a camera

Oasis bad boy Liam Gallagher will not be charged following an incident outside a North London pub earlier this month.

He was arrested after a photographer alleged that Gallagher had broken his camera outside the Pembroke Castle pub in Kentish Town on 4 November.

On Friday, however, a police spokesman confirmed that no further action would be taken against the singer.

It is not the first time the 24-year-old has had brushes with the law.

Earlier this year he was charged with assault on a British backpacker while the band was touring Australia. The criminal charges were later dropped.

In November 1996, he was given a police caution after he was caught in possession of cocaine.

He was also cautioned by the police for criminal damage in July 1997 after he allegedly grabbed a cyclist's shirt and dragged him alongside the Mercedes car in which he was a passenger.
