Outrageous demeanor in high places…

Good morning, Netizens…

Oh, how the once-mighty have fallen department. A British judge has sentenced Boy George to 15 months in prison after being convicted of falsely imprisoning a male escort by handcuffing him to a wall in a London apartment. British Judge David Radford said the 47-year-old former Culture Club frontman, whose real name is George O’Dowd, was guilty of “gratuitous violence.”

In 2006, Boy George — whose pop band’s hits included “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” and “Karma Chameleon” — had been convicted in December of handcuffing Norwegian escort Audun Carlsen to a wall hook at his East London apartment. During the trial, prosecutors said Carlsen was held by O’Dowd for under an hour.

The singer denied the charge, saying he had restrained Carlsen with handcuffs while trying to figure out if a computer had been tampered with. Carlsen, 29, said O’Dowd swung at him with a metal chain as he ran from the apartment after a naked photo shoot.

In case you had forgotten since the Culture Club’s heydays of the 80’s , Boy George was well-known for his flamboyant makeup and outfits. Now we can add outrageous behavior to the list of his attributes.

Does that fit the bill from your point of view?
