The Limp Bizkit singer is splatted during auditions to find the band's new guitarist...
FRED DURST was attacked by a cream pie wielding teenager on Sunday (January 13) during auditions for a new Limp Bizkit guitarist.
The Limp Bizkit frontman was in Clackamas, Oregon as part of the band’s nationwide US trip holding open auditions to find a replacement for recently departed Wes Borland. Durst and the band were returning to the audition from a lunch break when the 18-year-old Richard Petrillo struck. Sneaking past a line of fans waiting to get autographs, Petrillo hit Durst on the back of his head with a coconut cream pie.
The teen was held by two Limp Bizkit bodyguards until sheriff’s deputies, assigned to martial the event, arrived.
In the meantime, Durst signed Petrillo’s forehead with an indelible ink marker and drew and ‘X’ on his cheek. Petrillo was taken to the local police and charged with disorderly conduct and five counts of harassment.
VH-1 report that some 500 hopefuls have already tried their luck at the auditions, which so far have hit three cities, with a dozen picked out to jam with the Limp Bizkit rhythm section. The auditions continue today (January 16) in Boise, Idaho and Salt Lake City, Utah, tomorrow (January 17).
