Two employees of a contractor working on Britney Spears’ current US tour were arrested in California yesterday after they allegedly assaulted police officers who tried to break up a fight.
Reports say that one Rockey Lee Dickey was hitting another man, who has not been named, on a Manhattan Beach pavement when a patrol car drove by. When the police intervened, Dickey took a swing at one of the officers, and his companion Alex Montes, seemingly put a second officer in a headlock. Neither of the policemen were hurt, however.
Anyway, it’s all a bit far removed from Spears herself so I’m not sure that it should really be news. Spears’ website posted a statement making it clear that the two men worked for a contractor, and not directly for the singer herself. The statement adds: “The two individuals have since been dismissed by their employer. The tour does not support or tolerate this type of behaviour”.
