The Wanted have found themselves in trouble after allegedly pouring the contents of a bottle of champagne over a passerby from their hotel balcony.
Lack of morals aside, what a terrible waste of bubbly.
The Sun reports that the ‘Glad you Came’ singers were celebrating member Jay McGuiness’ birthday at the Marylebone Hotel, London, when the incident occurred.
Victim Dr Todd Swift, who was once Oxfam’s poet-in-residence, immediately called the police after he was drenched in the champagne from the lads’ second floor window.
Swift told the paper: “What sort of example are they setting to their young fans?
“I came out of the gym and was walking down the street.
“Suddenly I was hit with a lot of liquid. It was not, as the police claim, a glass of champagne. It was a lot of liquid. It went all over my hat, jacket, shirt and face.
“I looked up to the second floor and there were three young guys laughing at me. One of them said, ‘P*** and beer, mate’.”
Despite the police being called, The Wanted have escaped any charges due to a lack of clarity as to who did what.
A spokesperson for Scotland Yard said: “Police were called at around 12.20pm on Thursday, July 25, to a report of a man having been verbally threatened and having had a liquid substance thrown over him at a hotel in Marylebone.
“Officers returned the next day, July 26, and spoke to the party identified. It was ascertained that a glass of champagne had been thrown, but there was no evidence of who, if anyone, had actually done this or been involved in any verbal altercation.
“The victim was informed that without any further evidence there were no further lines of enquiry to pursue.”
