Hit Me Baby One More Time?

No? Im sorry, It was really just too easy. Britney Spears brings her World Tour sponsored by Zoloft to the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh tomorrow night, and apparently the crazy has already started without her. You see her production crew got here a little early and decided to hit the town last night....literally. Yes two people that allow Britney Spears to walk around the stage and lip synch got into a fight with a yinzer on the south side, then transfered their collective drunk to a couple Pittsburgh Police officers, and lastly got their ass tazered and thrown in the Allegheny County Jail.

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.

How great would this story have been if you replaced roadies with pop star Britney Spears. You know the Britney of late 2007 early 2008 could have gifted us with such a headline. The dead behind the glossy eyes nonperson is soo boring. I miss the old Britney back alley cat weaves and bad complexion.
