    Default Sammy Hagar was arrested ?

    I'll Cabo Wabo You Upside the Head
    The Red Rocker pummels a world-renowned architect!
    Wednesday, June 8, 2005 - Riverfront Times

    "St. Louis is rockin'! Sammy Hagar announced in front of 18,000+ fans
    during his St. Louis concert yesterday that he would open a Cabo Wabo
    Cantina in Spring 2007 in St. Louis' new $290 million Bottle District."


    - Bottle District press release, May 15, 2005

    "The new master plan for the historic Bottle District, by renowned
    architect Daniel Libeskind, builds on the city's great history, and
    looks to dynamic growth and expansion with new residences,
    entertainment venues and commercial development."

    - Bottle District press release May 20, 2005


    Days after pausing his sold-out show at the UMB Bank Pavilion to
    announce plans to open one of his Cabo Wabo Cantinas in St. Louis'
    downtown Bottle District, rock musician Sammy Hagar was arrested and
    charged with one count of aggravated battery for allegedly seeking out
    and pummeling famed architect Daniel Libeskind.

    Libeskind, perhaps best known for his proposal to redevelop the World
    Trade Center site post-9/11, had recently been retained by Bottle
    District redevelopers to create a master plan for the projected
    entertainment hub, located just north of St. Louis' Edward Jones Dome.

    The imbroglio took place in New York City on May 22. According to a
    police incident report, several witnesses said Hagar set upon Libeskind
    after spotting the cherubic design icon, who was clad in his trademark
    black ensemble, exiting a Fifth Avenue fashion boutique carrying a
    large shopping bag and a small dog.

    At one point, witnesses said, the 57-year-old Hagar, also known as the
    Red Rocker, ground the architect's face into the pavement and yelled,
    "I ain't gonna be upstaged by no 90-pound technogeek in designer
    frames, motherfucker!"

    The ambush appeared to have been premeditated.

    Police arrived to find Hagar fending off a counterattack by Libeskind's
    Jack Russell terrier, "Sly." The singer was booked at a neighborhood
    precinct and released on his own recognizance after refusing medical
    attention and a tetanus shot, according to the incident report.

    Libeskind, whose injuries did not require hospitalization, was
    unavailable for comment.

    One witness to the melée said Hagar was merely defending his honor.
    "It's like being bitch-slapped by 'Dieter, Host of Sprockets,'"
    lamented Hagar fan Jeremy Raan, citing the poor timing of the Bottle
    District's Libeskind announcement. "I don't see how you dismiss the
    world's greatest rock star for a fey dweeb."

    Singer-guitarist Hagar, a former boxer who rose to prominence in the
    early 1970s with the hard-rock band Montrose, had a solo hit with "Your
    Love Is Driving Me Crazy," which ascended to No. 13 on Billboard's pop
    music chart in 1983. In 1985 he joined the rock group Van Halen,
    replacing lead vocalist David Lee Roth.

    More recently Hagar began marketing tequila under the brand Cabo Wabo.
    Hagar may be concerned that Libeskind's hand will overshadow the
    nuanced flair of his Mexican-themed bar chain, the most distinguishing
    architectural feature of which is a phallic ersatz lighthouse.

    Even as his musical career has faded, Hagar has continued to enjoy a
    rabid following in St. Louis.

    The same cannot be said of Libeskind. Sources say that before the
    architect assented to the Bottle District consulting role, he requested
    to have St. Louis pointed out to him in a road atlas.

    This supposedly happened three weeks ago. If it actually did happen, why was it not brought to light sooner?

    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!

    Is it just me or does that sound like a fake article to anyone? Though why anyone would write that if it wasn't true is beyond me!

    Anyone have a link?

    Mainly because it didn't happen.

    this is BS. It would be all over Page 6 of the NY Post and the Daily News. I work in NY, never heard of this. I'm sure one my friends or co-workers would have heard about this and told me.

    I agree- every paper in the NYC metro area would've reported it. I think it's hilarious, especially what Sammy said, as he was ramming the guy's face into the concrete.- that's great

    To all the haters: I left it up to you guys to find the source, as I did not believe it when I read it. That's WHY I put it in the Rumor section. Tour2004, thanks for your effort. Sam probably hit the guy for doing this --->

    Sam's a hella fighter pounding that freak! Put his gay ass down for the count Sammy!

    When I read "crowd of 18,000 fans" I immediately knew it was BS....although it would have been fun to watch Sammy "spank" the guy.
