Axl Rose Out Of Jail

LATEST: GUNS N' ROSES frontman AXL ROSE was released from a Swedish jail on Tuesday (27JUN06), after being arrested for allegedly biting a security guard on the leg. Rose was held on suspicion of attacking and threatening the guard, as well as causing damage to the Berns Hotel in Stockholm where the alleged scuffle took place, according to police spokeswoman TOWE HAGG. After agreeing to pay a fine of 40,000 kronor (US$5,500/GBP3,000), he was released from jail around 7pm. He was also ordered to pay 10,000 kronor (US$1360/GBP756) in damages to the security guard. No criminal files were filed against Rose, who is set to perform in Oslo, Norway, tonight (28JUN06). According to Hagg, the singer was intoxicated at the time of the 8am confrontation and "was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away". It is not known what exactly started the altercation, but Swedish tabloid newspapers claim the security guard attempted to step in when the 44-year-old rocker began arguing with a woman in the hotel lobby. One of the officers who arrested Rose, FREDRIK NYLEN, was quoted on the Aftonbladet news website as saying that the rocker had behaved aggressively toward police and had to be "handcuffed and restrained" in the hotel. The band played a concert in Stockholm Globe Arena on Monday night (26JUN06), and Rose had been partying at a popular nightclub before the Tuesday morning incident, according to the Swedish news report.
