Nearly 1 am on Thursday, two of Britney Spears’ tour crew were arrested after getting into a fight with police in Pittsburgh. RadarOnline.com brings you new details and a first look at the two men.
Rockey Lee Dickey, Jr., 34, from Manhattan Beach, CA, was spotted hitting another man in the face by patrolling police. As soon as the officers left their car to approach the men, Dickey swung at a officer, “grazing his head and knocking his hat off.”
After further trying to subdue him, Alex Montes, 23, from Valencia, Ca, “intervened one of the responding officers…placing him in a headlock.” The officers eventually used a taser to subdue Dickey after verbal commands to stop resisting arrest failed. Montes fled the scene but was later found.
“Both had very strong odors of alcohol, slurred speech, and bloodshot eyes…they were charged with Aggravated Assault, Disorderly Conduct, Simple Assault, Public Drunkeness, and possible additional charges,” said the official release from the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. The two men were arrested and are being held on $100,000 bail.
The victim who Dickey was spotted punching (Matthew Boyle, 30, from Pittsburgh) was taken to the hospital and released later that evening after getting treated for injuries on his forehead and nose. Dickey was also transported to a hospital for medical clearance.
Diane Richards, a public information officer for the Pittsburgh police confirmed “the officers involved were not harmed.”
