Award-winning British rap star Ms Dynamite was arrested over allegations of assault in a London restaurant. The alleged incident happened Sept. 17 at a restaurant in the Soho district of central London.

The 23-year-old artist, whose real name is Niomi McLean-Daley, was arrested in connection with the allegation after voluntarily turning herself in at the end of last week, police said.

Ms. Dynamite is free on bail and is due to return to a central London police station at an as-yet-unannounced date in November.

The artist won the coveted Mercury Music Prize for her 2002 album, "A Little Deeper," and has won a string of prizes since, including two Brit Awards and three MOBOs (Music of Black Origin).
