Aaron North, formerly of the Icarus Line and now with Nine Inch Nails, is in trouble with a security guard who says the guitarist wounded him “intentionally, violently and without a just cause,” when he allegedly launched a mic stand into a crowd in Wisconsin.
North's retort of "...but it's rock'n'roll, you douche!", has apparently not been enough to stop a Mr Mark LaVoie from launching law suits against both him and Nine Inch Nails.
In papers acquired by TMZ.com, LaVoie whinged that he was:
"...knocked unconscious, fell to the floor, and was bleeding from a large laceration on the top of his head."
Prosecutors are not sure whether he said this before or after he pumelled a teenager half deathways for the heinous crime of crowd surfing. Perhaps.
