Chris Wants Charges Dropped
October 08, 2003 5:12 PM
Chris Martin has requested police drop a charge of malicious damage against him relating to an alleged incident in Australia.
As previously reported, the Coldplay singer was allegedly involved in an incident in July this year with a photographer at the popular Byron Bay beach resort where he was surfing.
Photographer Jon Lister claims Martin demanded he deleted the pictures of him surfing from a digital camera. As the argument progressed it is alleged he went at Lister's vehicle with a rock, before attempting to let the air out of his tyres.
BBC news reports that a hearing today his lawyer, Megan Cusack, asked for the charge to be dropped. Magistrate Chris Bone adjourned the case until 21 November.

British rockers Coldplay are so determined to make it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, their next album will be the one that gets them there.
Frontman Chris Martin and his group have already become darlings of the critics, but he's out to make sure the group's next album is the one that helps than get into the rock mecca.
He explains, "We're gonna try to make a record that will get us inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
The group will start recording the third album in Chicago, Illinois, at the end of the year, but, oddly, they'll have to wait another 22 years to become eligible for a Hall of Fame induction artists are only considered 25 years after their first hit.
