Rock News: Fred Durst Arrested, now charged with assault.
Story update

 It seems security guards are not safe in rock n roll these days. It's not the rabid fans that attack them, but the artist themselves. We reported a few months back on how the lead vocalist of Godsmack had "smacked" a security guard, now Fred Durst has joining in the newest Rock n Roll game, Security Guard Bashing.

Fred Durst lead singer of the rap-metal band Limp Bizkit was arrested on Monday July 12th in St. Paul, Minn. and charged with assault. There was a minor scuffle on stage while the band was playing at the Roy Wilkens Auditorium, Durst has been accused of kicking a security guard in the head during the incident. 

The bands personal security guard was in the process of escorting a fan offstage, when two guards hired by the venue jumped into the fry.  According to witnesses at the show, Durst announced to the audience after the incident that he had kicked a security guard. 

After completing the show Durst was arrested back stage and the later released on $50,000 bail. No court date has been set, and this incident should not interfere with the bands current tour dates. 

Update: July 16th.
St. Paul's Deputy City Attorney George Stephenson says that  Durst will be officially charged in the next few days for assault and disorderly conduct. 

If convicted Durst will be facing a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail, a $700 fine, and two years probation
