Kidz In The Hall Address Arrest Reports

LATEST: KIDZ IN THE HALL star DJ DOUBLE-O is recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery following a bloody fight in an Arizona nightclub last weekend, which saw his bandmate NALEDGE arrested.
Rapper Naledge was taken into police custody in the early hours of Saturday (26Jul08) after a fight broke out in the Cherry Lounge + Pit, where the duo was due to perform.
Initially, details surrounding the incident were scarce, but a police report stated that Naledge had to be physically removed from the venue after failing to comply with cops' requests to leave the crime scene. He was subsequently charged with obstructing justice.
Reports also alleged that no one was injured in the fight - a claim Kidz In The Hall's managers have been quick to quash.
The duo's management team has now released a statement in a bid to clear up rumours about exactly what happened at the club.
They claim DJ Double-O had suffered serious injuries after being assaulted by the club's bouncers following a heated argument - landing him in a local hospital.
The statement reads: "Double-O was assaulted by several bouncers early Saturday morning, July 26, while inside a nightclub in Tempe, AZ, following a Kidz In The Hall performance.
"Group member and friend Naledge, who did not witness the assault on Double-O, was arrested outside of the club. Naledge's attempt to get medical assistance for Double-O was misconstrued as a hindrance to the investigation.
"Reports that no injuries were sustained are false, as Double-O was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries from the excessive force used by club security."
Naledge was released from Tempe City Jail after posting $500 (GBP250) bail.
