The police brought him to the station, questioned him and released him on bail after allegations that he attacked two women at a night club.

Swedish singer/DJ has been arrested and questioned by police over an alleged sexual assault on two female partygoers at a nightclub in Scotland earlier this month. The "Now You're Gone" hitmaker - real name Jonas Altberg - is accused of attacking two women at Kitty's in Kirkcaldy, Fife after a show on December 9.

The 25-year-old star has been arrested and charged with an unspecified offence under Scotland's Sexual Offences Act. He was released on bail and will appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court in January.

A Fife Constabulary spokesman says, "Police in Fife can confirm that a 25-year-old man has been arrested in relation to alleged offences committed at Kitty's, Hunter Street, Kirkcaldy, and has been bailed to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court in due course." The hitmaker has now returned to his native Sweden and his manager, Scott Simons, insists the allegations are "totally untrue".
