Britney Spears’ Stage Crew: Drunk and Disorderly?
Britney Spears has definitely pulled her life together lately. Her roadies? Maybe not so much.
Two members of Spears’ Circus tour stage crew were arrested in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, after allegedly getting into a physical confrontation with police, according to a statement released by the Pittsburgh Police Department.
Rockey Lee Dickey, Jr. and Alex Montes “both had very strong odors of alcohol, slurred speech, and bloodshot eyes…[they were] charged with aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, simple assault, public drunkenness, and possible additional charges,” the statement reads.
Police are said to have come upon Dickey while he was hitting another man. Dickey allegedly knocked the hat off one of the approaching police officers.
Montes allegedly jumped in to prevent his fellow crew member from being taken away and put one of the police officers in a headlock. He fled, but was later found.
Dickey was subdued via Taser. Shocking!
Both men are being held on $100,000 bail.
Britney should probably pay that. It must be a relief to finally have the focus taken off her for once. They should be rewarded!
