Woman arrested for damaging DJ's decks...because he wouldn't play her song
8:00am Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
A WOMAN has been arrested on suspicion of causing £1,000 damage to a DJ’s decks....because he wouldn’t play her song.
She is alleged to have lost her rag at Papillion, in Marine Parade, Southend, after peristently asking for her favourite tune.
Then, as Colin Jones, began to pack up his DJ equipment for the night she is alleged to have poured beer all over it.
It caused damage to his two laptops and his mixing deck.
Mr Jones, 34, said she had kept coming up to him saying “Are you going to play my song” but he didn’t have it.
He said: “It was one of the new songs that hadn’t come out in the charts yet so I couldn’t get hold of it.
She just kept telling me it was on You Tube. “Then as I started packing up the pub she walked over and poured beer all over my equipment.”
He is now planning to get her banned from all pubs and clubs in Southend with a BoBB (Behave or Be Banned) order.
He also reported the matter to police, who had been trying to track her down since it happened on June 3.
But then Mr Jones’ pal spotted her at a party where pictures were being taken by a professional photographer, and put on to Facebook.
They gave the information to police, who tracked the suspect down and arrested her on suspicion of criminal damage.
She has been bailed until the end of October pending further enquiries.
