D.A. Mulls Charges For Limp Bizkit's Durst In On-Stage Scuffle

While Limp Bizkit got good news on the chart front on Wednesday, the band also saw at least some good legal news come their way as well.

The Ramsey County District Attorney's office told MTV News that frontman Fred Durst will not face felony charges in connection with his arrest Monday night after he allegedly kicked a security guard. The D.A.'s office did note that Durst may still face misdemeanor charges, but that no charges have been filed yet.

As we first reported on Tuesday, Durst was arrested after his band's show Monday night in St. Paul, Minnesota when police claim the singer kicked the guard during his band's performance (see "Limp Bizkit's Durst Arrested After On Stage Skirmish"). Durst was taken into custody, and released on $50,000 bail.

A prosecutor is currently reviewing the case and will speak to the alleged victim before determining how to proceed with the case. The D.A.'s office says that charges of simple

assault and disorderly conduct are being considered for Durst, which would carry a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and/or a $700 fine if convicted. The D.A.'s office should decide by Thursday if they want to press charges against the singer.

The Limp Bizkit camp told police that the incident was a simple case of mistaken identity, and that Durst thought the guard was a fan attacking his bodyguard.

However, a spokesman for the St. Paul Police Department told MTV News on Wednesday that Durst knew he had attacked a guard because the singer stopped the concert and told the crowd, "I kicked that punk-ass security guard in the head."

Neither management nor Interscope Records would comment further.

Looking on the brighter side of Limp Bizkit life, Wednesday's SoundScan results show the guys topping next week's "Billboard" album charts for the third week in a row (see "Limp Bizkit Holds On As Weird Al Gets A Chart Goose").
