When Rock Stars Meet Southern Alberta Rednecks – Marilyn Manson Sucker Punched @ Denny’s
Our pride runs deep for Southern Alberta 😉 Just had to share this story: We don’t usually put up these types of stories, however this one was pretty funny. South of our neck of the woods.
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson reportedly punched at Alberta Denny’s location
Manson got into an argument with a group at another table. They claim the argument turned violent after Manson called one of the other patrons a derogatory term.
The Lethbridge Regional Police Service confirms they were called to the Denny’s located in the 400 block of Mayor Magrath Drive South around 2:45 a.m. on Saturday for reports of a physical altercation.
Investigators say three people were involved in the incident, which resulted in minor injuries.
No charges were laid.
Officers won’t confirm whether Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, was involved in the fight.
Meanwhile New Report is:
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson wants police to arrest a man who assaulted him and his makeup artist inside a Denny’s restaurant in Lethbridge, Alberta early Sunday.
Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, claims he was sucker punched in the face after he agreed to pose with two females who asked for a photo.
The 46-year-old singer’s manager told TMZ a man approached, punched Manson and ran off.
Manson performed Saturday night at the Enmax Centre in Lethbridge.
Eyewitness Johnny Scott told the Calgary Herald the assault was unprovoked.
“The guy just punched him right in the face,” he said. Manson’s bodyguard chased the suspect outside.
TMZ reported Manson’s makeup artist was elbowed in the face during the incident.
Lethbridge Regional Police Service confirmed in a statement that officers were called to the Denny’s at around 2:45 a.m. to investigate an altercation involving three people.
“No charges were laid and the file is concluded,” said police, adding it is policy to not divulge the names of assault victims or persons who have not been arrested.
But Manson’s manager told TMZ the musician and his makeup artist will file a report with police. The report also claims Manson wants to sue his attacker.
Denny’s Canada hasn’t commented officially but on Twitter said: “We are happy to announce that no food was harmed during the post concert altercation #makepancakesnotwar”
Global News was not able to reach Manson’s manager, Tony Ciulla.
Manson’s Hell Not Hallelujah Tour is in Regina on Tuesday night and will play in Winnipeg on Thursday.
News of the incident has gone viral, with Twitter users weighing in from all over the world.
What do the locals say:
How insulting is that? Marilyn Manson being punched out, in the cheapest eat’in joint in town. I’ve visited Lethbridge in Southern Alberta and seen their Denny’s. It ain’t fancy by far, even for rednecks.
Cowboy Country is not short on controversy. Last time a big “Rock Star” visited down there, the story was.
Snoop Dogg has Lethbridge sniffing out behaviour bonds
Lethbridge City Council is considering tightening the rules for concerts at the city-owned
Enmax Centre after hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg allegedly smoked marijuana on stage.
Proposed guidelines,which were going to council Monday, would require a performance bond from acts deemed a risk to public values. Performers would have to leave a deposit with the city and behave on stage to get that money back.
Snoop Dogg’s lack of respect,not just his alleged drug use, is at issue, said Bob Tarleck, mayor of the city about 200 kilometres south of Calgary.
“We saw it as a real affront to our community. We saw that as a group of entertainers who thought that they could come in and just ignore —totally ignore — the rules of our community.”
The debate fired up after the city received complaints about Snoop Dog’s conduct during a concert in January. The performer allegedly smoked marijuana on stage while encouraging the audience to do the same.
Not everyone thinks such on-stage antics are a big deal.
Colleen Van Raalte, who helps plan concerts for the student’s union at the University of Lethbridge, said that while she understands council’s concerns, people who buy tickets know what they’re in for.
“I mean it’s buyer beware,” she said. “People know, I think, what they’re getting into when they purchase tickets and go to a show like that.”
Tarleck said Snoop Dogg would be welcomed back in Lethbridge as long as he promises to follow the rules.
