It is reported that the former 90s boyband star has been brought to a police station in North London.
Brian Harvey, 43, has been arrested on suspicion of sending malicious tweets, according to reports. The BBC News documented that the former boy band star was taken to a police station in North London on Wednesday.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police released the following statement: "The Metropolitan Police Service has received an allegation of malicious communications relating to a Twitter account. On Wednesday November 22, a man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of malicious communications and has been taken to a north London police station. Enquiries continue."
Harvey enjoyed chart success with East 17 in the mid to late 90s, scoring hits like ‘Stay Another Day’ and ‘House of Love’. But in 2010, Harvey's remarks about Ecstasy saw him sacked from the group. He was left with severe injuries in 2005 following an accident in which he ran over himself - an accident he then blamed on eating too many baked potatoes.
Reuniting several times and now under the name E-17, the band released their sixth studio album earlier this year. Minus Harvey and Mortimer, and instead with new member, Robbie Craig.
