Alcoholica

A Brewster police officer is on paid administrative leave after allegedly urinating on a fellow music-lover at a Metallica concert in Boston and then refusing to leave TD Banknorth Garden when security guards ejected him for disorderly conduct.

A Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Transit Police report from that night identifies Brewster Police Officer Joseph Houston, 29, as being thrown out of the Jan. 18 rock concert by security guards at around 10 p.m.

Although he has been charged only with trespassing, Houston appeared to be drunk, flashed his badge in an attempt to get back into the concert, called a black MBTA officer "Obama," and had been asked to leave the concert after he allegedly urinated on another patron, according to the report.

In related news, "Rumor going around Austin is that Metallica will be performing on March 21st @ Stubbs BBQ. Anyone else heard this rumor? That place only holds around 1500 people, so that would be killer is it was true."

Devo is definitely playing SXSW.

Metallica, who was recently inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, is definitely playing Nassau Coliseum in Long Island Thursday, and the Prudential Center in Newark this Saturday and Superbowl Sunday.

This headline is likely to maintain the high level of discourse on this site.

At least he didn't take flash photos throughout their set. That would have been annoying.

"that is a pretty weak rumor :)"

Prepare to be in disbelief when it ends up being true.

i'll be at the Mausoleum tomorrow night.

Pissed I won't be able to see Mould. He performed "I'm Sorry, Baby, But You Can't Stand In My Light Any More" at Maxwell's last year and it was fantastic.

Change the words "Metallica fan" to "Lars Ulrich" and this would be one of the greatest headlines to grace the pages on BV.
