Blabbermouth reports: Mexican concert promoter Francisco Hernandez of Ugly Duck Productions is threatening to sue W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland for allegedly causing damage to a van that was transporting the group all over Mexico during the band's recent tour of the country. The following is a brief question-and-answer session with Hernandez, conducted for a Mexican fanzine by El Bam Bam:

Q: Why are you going to sue Stet Howland?

A: "At the last gig we did with W.A.S.P. in Mexico City, this creep decided to damage the van that was transporting them. He wrote on the roof of the van, 'Suck my dick.'"

Q: Why do you think he did that?

A: "The only reason he did that is because he's an a**hole. After the show, I went to the Monterrey Metal Fest, and I received a message telling me what he did to the van. I immediately went to talk with [the band] and to tell them that they were going to be put in Mexican jail if they don't pay for the damage caused to the van. They promised to care of this, and he really looked scared and promised to make arrangements to pay for the damage."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
