London - Adam Lambert has blamed getting arrested in Finland on a combination of travel, alcohol and confusion.

The former American Idol star was taken to a police station and questioned after a fight with his boyfriend, Finnish reality TV star Sauli Koskinen, in Helsinki gay bar Don't Tell Momma became physical in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Sauli was also arrested following the incident but both men have been released following what Detective Superintendent Petri Juvonen called a "not very serious incident".

'Celebrities are only human'

Now Adam - who allegedly hit people who tried to intervene - has taken to Twitter to give his account of the fight and reveal the pair have already made up and are "laughing about it".

He wrote: "Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it. :) (sic)"

Sauli also addressed the incident on his blog, writing in Finnish, "Publicity is not easy. But celebrities are only human people."

Police said the two men were released after a few hours and that no further action would be taken.
