Spears' Crew Members Arrested On South Side
Police say two men, working for the Britney Spears concert tour, have posted bond after being arrested on Pittsburgh's South Side for a fight that involved police officers.
According to police, 34-year-old Rockey Dickey, Jr., and 23-year-old Alex Montes, both of California, were arrested just before 1 a.m. today on the South Side.
Police say both men are roadies working for the Britney Spears concert tour, which is in town for a show on Friday, March 27th at Mellon Arena.
Authorities report that officers on patrol on Carson Street spotted two men involved in a fight, but when they tried to break it up, one of the men, identified as Dickey, reportedly tried to hit an officer.
That's when police say Montes assaulted another one of the officers.
Police say a Taser was used to subdue Dickey, while Montes was tracked down and arrested at the intersection of 17th Street and Wright's Way after leaving the initial scene of the fight.
Dickey was taken to Southside Hospital to be checked out and both were taken to Allegheny County Jail.
In addition to aggravated assault, both Dickey and Montes are being charged with disorderly conduct, simple assault and public drunkenness.
Officials say the officers were not injured during the incident and the victim in the fight was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Police say both posted their bond at 11 a.m. Both men could face additional charges.Source
