Rocker Axl Rose Won’t Be Prosecuted for Alleged Assault
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Axl Rose, lead singer of the rock band Guns ’N Roses, won’t be prosecuted for the alleged assault of his neighbor because there wasn’t enough evidence, the District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.
The singer and Gabriella Kantor had been bickering for some time before she alleged he hit her over the head with a wine bottle on Oct. 30.
Ms. Kantor said Rose was too noisy; the rocker said she was a groupie trying to get into his inner circle.
The 28-year-old singer was jailed for four hours before posting $5,000 bail. Rose denied touching the woman and his lawyers described Ms. Kantor as ″a potentially dangerous rock ‘n’ roll groupie.″
Rose eventually got a restraining order preventing Ms. Kantor from coming near him, his wife, Erin, or their guests.
The heavy metal rocker has decided to move from his West Hollywood neighborhood to an $800,000 home he has purchased in Hollywood Hills, overlooking the city.
