Def Leppard Drummer Attacked In Front Of Florida Hotel
First of all, how in hell could you attack Rick Allen of Def Leppard? Second, it freaking happened. Looks like Rick was taking a smoke break outside the Four Seasons Hotel in Fort Lauderdale on Monday. That’s when police say a 19-year-old man approached him and assaulted him.
Allen, the beloved 59-year-old Def Leppard drummer told investigators that he and his band were in Fort Lauderdale to play a show on their current tour with Motley Crue at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino over the weekend. When he took a break for a cigarette outside the hotel on Monday, the drummer said the suspect ran toward him at full speed, knocking him to the ground, causing injuries. Investigators say a woman who was inside the hotel during the attack rushed outside to help Allen, but the man knocked her down, too. When the woman tried to escape, the report says the suspect chased her into the hotel lobby, dragged her back out and then continued to hit her until leaving the scene shortly afterward. The suspect, later identified as a 19-year-old man from Ohio, was quickly located and arrested at a nearby hotel.
The man was charged with elder abuse, battery and criminal mischief. He was later released on bail. When asked about the incident as he was leaving jail, the suspect refrained from comment. Allen, who lost his left arm in a car accident back in the 1980s, was interviewed by police and he told them he wanted to man to be prosecuted. We’re right there with you, Rick. Sorry about your terrible experience with that guy. Trust me, the rest of us love what you do! Source: BlabberMouth.net
