Axl Rose arrested

Star spends the night in Swedish jail

Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose has been arrested after a concert in Sweden.

Rose was allegedly involved in an altercation outside the Berns Hotel in the Swedish capital Stockholm this morning (June 27).

In the alleged fracas a security guard claims he was bitten on the leg, BBC News reports.

There are conflicting reports as to whether Rose has been charged in connection with the incident. According to MTV News, the 44-year old has been charged with damaging property, assaulting a security guard and threatening a police officer. However, BBC News say he is still to be questioned.

In a statement released on Tuesday (June 27), Axl said: “We had a great gig in Stockholm and I am not going to let this incident spoil that. My assistant Beta and I were talking in the lobby of the hotel when security started to give us a hard time. My only concern was to make sure she was OK.”
