Clown Posse Handler Fined For Fight With Eminem Fan

Rap group's road manager pleads guilty to disorderly conduct charge, fined $100.

Insane Clown Posse road manager William Dail pleaded guilty Tuesday to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from an altercation with an Eminem fan in May. He was ordered to pay a $100 fine.

Dail, 27, entered his plea in a Douglas County courtroom in Omaha, Nebraska, according to city prosecutor Marty Conboy. Dail was scheduled to be tried for misdemeanor assault and battery, but the charges were lessened to disorderly conduct after several witnesses for the prosecution couldn't be located. Both charges carry similar penalties, Conboy said.

After ICP's show in Omaha on May 8, Dail accosted 23-year-old Thomas P. Goonan, whom he claimed was waving an Eminem T-shirt and throwing M&Ms at the group during their performance (see "Insane Clown Posse Road Manager Charged With Choking Eminem Fan"). Goonan claims Dail threw him against a wall and choked him.

Both Eminem and ICP hail from Detroit and are longtime rivals.
