Axl Rose Allegedly Bites Security Guard

STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was arrested in Stockholm early Tuesday after allegedly biting a security guard in the leg outside his hotel, police said.

Rose _ who performed in the Swedish capital on Monday evening _ was being held on suspicion of attacking and threatening the guard, as well as causing damage to the Berns Hotel where the alleged scuffle took place, police spokeswoman Towe Hagg said.

Hagg told The Associated Press that Rose was intoxicated during the confrontation, which broke out around 8 a.m., and would face questioning after he sobers up.

"He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away," she said.

I'm shocked, shocked! Well, no, not really. But I thought Axl was in Guns N' Roses, not the Fine Young Cannibals! Although "She Drives Me Crazy" seems to fit as the background music, since Axl was said to have had an altercation with a woman at the hotel before the security guard became involved, according to another news story I read. I went to the Aftonbladet site, but unless you can read Swedish, you're outta luck there. No English language site, unlike those nice folks at the Norwegian paper in Oslo.
