St. Louis Riot

"Well....thanks to the lame ass security, I'm going home!"
—Axl Rose

In July 1991, Axl Rose jumped off stage during a concert to take a video camera away from a fan. The concert was aborted as Rose and the other band members left the stage, sparking an intense riot, for which he was later arrested in 1992. A judge later ruled that he was not responsible for the riot and dismissed the charges against him. Below is a video of the incident. <youtube v=JJnvAr6vaRs />
