Walsh Accuser Arrested
A man who allegedly accused Irish music mogul Louis Walsh of indecently assaulting him in a nightclub has been arrested on suspicion of making a false statement.
Walsh, who acts as a judge on the British version of Simon Cowell’s The X Factor, vehemently denied accusations he groped a 24 year old at the Krystle nightclub in Dublin following a Westlife concert in April.
The investigation into the allegations has now been dropped and police have taken a male dancer into custody to grill him over his claims, according to Britain’s Daily Mirror.
He was reportedly questioned at a Dublin police station on Tuesday.
The man’s father tells the newspaper, “There is no comment. Maybe he has withdrawn his statements, I don’t know. I haven’t spoken to (my son).”
