    Default Arresting VIP Ozzy Pre-Concert Party in Fargo

    Mama, I'm coming home (but first I gotta post bail)

    Ozzy Osbourne fans had better read the fine print on their VIP tickets from now on.

    Ozzy Osbourne fans had better read the fine print on their VIP tickets from now on.

    The heavy-metal legend is barking at a Fargo-area sheriff who set up a bogus VIP party before his Oct. 29 Fargodome concert to arrest 36 people with outstanding warrants.

    Thinking they had won concert tickets compliments of "PDL Productions," the unsuspecting fans actually got a free trip to jail from Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney. The arrests were for such violations as ignoring court summons and failing to pay child support, including two warrants from Minnesota. The department went so far as to print up fake "I Crashed the Bash" T-shirts and offered a free souvenir photo -- a booking photo.

    In a statement Friday, Osbourne bit back.

    "It's insulting to me and to my audience, and it shows how lazy this particular sheriff is when it comes to doing his job," said the heavy-metal legend, who also gave an, um, arresting performance Wednesday in Minneapolis.

    Laney said: "I stand by what we did as a creative way to serve our community. Many bars and businesses ... threw pre-concert events to advertise themselves. We just threw a different kind of party."
