Meat Puppets bassist CRIS KIRKWOOD faces two years behind bars after
pleading guilty to assault - after a row over a parking space.
The BACKWATER singer, 43, entered a guilty plea at the US District Court
on Monday (10MAY04) to assault with a dangerous weapon after hitting a post
office security guard with a baton in Phoenix, Arizona in December 2003 - a
fight that left him
with a bullet wound in his stomach.
The rocker is expected to be jailed for a minimum 27 months when he is
sentenced on 26 July (04) in addition to a restitution payment to the victim.
If it had gone to trial, Kirkwood could have faced up to 10 years in prison.
