December 11 [14:30 EDT] -- Those Mötley Crüe members live up to their band moniker more and more all the time. According to a report from AP, Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx were arrested during a show in Phoenix, Arizona at the America West Arena, for physically assaulting a security guard.
In Wednesday's incident, the band was encouraging the crowd to rush the stage. Security guard, Kenneth Chambers, tried to maintain the audience, so Lee and Sixx "tackled him," according police Sergeant Mike Torres. Reportedly, the rush to the stage caused $15,000 worth of damage to the chairs.
Lee and Sixx were booked for a misdemeanor and released early Thursday. This has been a busy time for Mötley Crüe. In November, we reported that Nikki Sixx was caught on tape verbally abusing a security guard with racial slurs at a North Carolina show. The band is scheduled to play Albuquerque, New Mexico, Thursday night.
