Pop star Shakin' Stevens has been found guilty of hitting a photographer with a microphone stand.
The singer - real name Michael Barrett - was fined £300 for assault and criminal damage and ordered to pay the photographer £479 to compensate for his broken camera lens.
The Cardiff-born star is said to be disappointed with the hearing, and insists "he is innocent of the charges brought", his lawyer reveals.
Shakin' Stevens was one of the top-selling UK male artists of the Eighties, with hits including This Ole House and Merry Christmas Everyone.
