2 Roadies From Spears Tour Arrested In Pittsburgh

Posted: Updated:
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Two employees of a contractor working for Britney Spears' concert tour were arrested early Thursday morning after police said they assaulted officers who tried to break up a fight.

Rockey Lee Dickey Jr., 34, of Manhattan Beach, Calif., was hitting another man on a city sidewalk when a patrol car drove by at around 1 a.m., police said. Dickey swung at one of the officers who intervened, knocking off his hat, and had to be subdued with a Taser, police said.

Police said Alex Montes, 23, of Valencia, Calif., put one of the officers in a headlock.

The officers were not hurt.

Both men were being held in the Allegheny County Jail on assault and public drunkenness charges. It was not immediately known if they had attorneys.

The alleged victim, identified only as a 30-year-old Pittsburgh man, was taken to a hospital for facial injuries.

Spears' Web site posted a statement saying the two men worked for a company that was contracted to provide road crew service, not for Spears or her tour.

"The two individuals have since been dismissed by their employer. The ... tour does not support or tolerate this type of behavior," the statement said.
