Thousands of Australian country-pop-rock and enthusiasts and generally proud Australians have taken to the streets of Adelaide this afternoon to protest the incarceration of the former Australian Idol runner up and Australian heartland rock singer Shannon Noll.
Noll was arrested outside a Hindley Street strip club in Adelaide early this morning, and charged with two counts of assault.
It’s alleged the 41-year-old was taken into custody outside the Crazy Horse after an altercation with security.
The crowds have been chanting the lyrics to the musician’s ‘What About Me’ and ‘Let’s Drive’ as police presence grows.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has asked all Australians to remain calm at this confusing and distressing time.
“I would ask that all proud Australians try not to jump to Nollsy’s defence just yet” he said.
“It sounds like he coward punched a couple seccies. Thats not a good look”
“I know you love him but don’t put yourselves on the line for him just yet”
MORE TO COME.
