According to a report made by Chester’s local newspaper The Standard, Alien Ant Farm guitarist Terry Corso has allegedly pleaded guilty to assaulting a fan, Richard Newton, at one of the band’s recent shows on their UK headline tour. The incident reportedly occurred at the Live Rooms venue in Chester, during the band’s performance on October 26th 2016.
Corso‘s solicitor, Stephen Ferns, was quoted in the Chester Leader as saying the following:
“Two days before in Preston someone threw urine at the singer [Dryden Mitchell] and they all stormed off stage. Then on the 26th in Chester, Terry Corso had something thrown at him which he assumed was urine.
He felt angry at that so he confronted the fan and ended up hitting him once. He regrets his actions and says he never should have jumped off the stage.”
It has been reported that Chester Magistrates Court gave Corso a 12 month conditional discharge, which will mean he will be able to enter the UK in the future. He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £85, compensation to Mr. Newton of £100, and a victim surcharge of £20.
