Police Investigate Chair Assault At Dmx Gig
LATEST: A 29-year-old woman suffered a laceration to the head at a DMX concert in Uniondale, New York on Saturday (30SEP06), after being hit by a chair reportedly thrown from the stage. Police are investigating the incident as an assault after receiving a complaint from the victim, who was treated at Nassau University Hospital. DMX - real name EARL SIMMONS - was performing a Back To School Jam '06 concert at the Nassau Coliseum, when his set was plagued by sound problems which saw his microphone completely cut out. Even after sound was restored angry fans began pelting the stage with water bottles and food. Members of DMX's entourage retaliated by throwing the objects back into the crowd, including the alleged chair. Police were forced to end the concert, cancelling a headline performance by DIPSET rapper JIM JONES.
