Axl Vs Security Guard
The guard, Gary Armijo, filed suit in the Los Angeles Superior Court on August 29 and claims that during a concert at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles in December of 1996, Axl "intentionally kicked [him] in the head proximately causing severe physical injuries." We were at the show in question (it was December of last year) and did not witness such a headkicking, but there was a spot where someone tossed a drink on stage and that set Axl off a little, so it may have happened then.
Of course, Axl says this lawsuit and allegations are BS. At least his attorney does and says they have video to prove it. Howard Weitzman, Axl's attorney spoke with TMZ shortly after they ran a story about the lawsuit and said, "The allegations in this lawsuit are frivolous. There is video of this incident which contradicts the allegations against Axl. Axl vehemently denies he did anything wrong which will be proven via witnesses and the video. Unfortunately anyone can file a lawsuit whether it has merit or not. In my opinion this is a pathetic attempt to get money from Axl." - Read the lawsuit here (especially if you never knew Axl's birth name).
