Axl Arrested

(antiMusic) Guns N' Roses hasn't truly returned until someone get arrested and leave it to frontman Axl Rose to make it official. In a bizarre story coming out of Sweden, Rose was arrested for violent conduct, damaging a hotel room and threatening police. Damaged hotel rooms are nothing new in rock n roll but the strangeness comes from reports that Axl bit a security guard in the leg. 

The fun and games took place at the Berns Hotel in Stockholm following the Guns N' Roses concert at the Globe Arena on Monday night. Stockholm Police Department spokesperson told MTV News that the trouble began when Rose got into an altercation with a woman at the hotel's bar and when a security guard stepped in, Rose attacked him. "He bit him on the leg and then the hotel staff called the police and we came and apprehended him," Hagg said. 

Police arrested Rose and placed him in a jail cell to sober up before questioning him. He does face possible jail time; especially for the charge of threatening a police officer (details about that charge were not available at press time).

Update: Billboard is reporting that Rose was released from jail Tuesday evening, after he admitted to the charges and agreed to pay a fine of $5,500 and $1,360 in damages to the security guard.
