  • Axl Rose to pay guard he allegedly bit

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Axl Rose spent most of the day in a Stockholm jail cell after allegedly biting a security guard in the leg at his hotel, police said.

    Rose was released from jail that evening, after he admitted to the charges and agreed to pay a fine of $5,500, Hagg said.

    Concert organizer Ema Telstar spokeswoman Catarina Oscarsson said the band wasn‘t traveling with a publicist and would not comment on the arrest.

    "He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away," she said.

    Police officer Fredrik Nylen was quoted by the daily Aftonbladet Web site as saying Rose acted aggressively toward police and had to be handcuffed and restrained in the hotel.

    Guns N‘ Roses played a concert in Stockholm‘s Globe Arena on Monday night, and had been partying at a well-known nightclub before the scuffle, Aftonbladet said.

    In May, Rose and fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger capped an evening out at a new club called The Plumm in New York City‘s Chelsea neighborhood with midnight fisticuffs.

    Rose was at the club to play a surprise set for "Rent" actress Rosario Dawson for her 27th birthday party.
