Did BBC RADIO 1 personality JK bite a pub operator in a scuffle FRIDAY night?
The WORCESTER NEWS reports that BRIDGE HOTEL landlady KATE TRUSSELL alleges that the "JK AND JOEL" 4-7a show and "OFFICIAL CHART SHOW" co-host (real name JASON GRIFFITHS) bit her wrist while she was attempting to throw him out of the premises after a DJ gig at the TENBURY WELLS venue and a dispute over JK using the club's old speakers rather than its new sound system.
TRUSSELL says that a shouting match erupted, and she was attacked by JK's sister JULIANA and that in the ensuing scuffle, JK bit her, although her skin was not broken. TRUSSELL tells the paper that she has demanded a written apology. The BBC says that the issue is a private matter and no official complaint has been received.
