DJ Uncle Kracker
has hit out at allegations he forced himself on a woman in a nightclub last week, insisting he's "saddened" people believe it.
Kracker - real name Matthew Shafer - was arrested by police in an Embassy Suites hotel in Raleigh, North Carolina, early on Friday after a 26-year-old female approached an off-duty police officer in a nightclub and claimed Shafer "had committed a sexual act against her while she was inside the establishment."
But Kid Rock's
former collaborator maintains the charge is ridiculous, telling People.com, "It's regrettable that someone would make this kind of allegation, not only because it's not the kind of thing I'd do, as the father of three girls, it's the kind of thing that I wouldn't stand for.
"Anyone can say anything about anybody but it doesn't make it true or correct. This is one of those cases. I'm saddened that anyone might think I'm capable of this sort of thing."
Kracker has been released on $75,000 bond.
