Axl Rose, the frontman of American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, was arrested by Swedish police early Tuesday June 27. According to a Swedish police spokesperson, Rose got into an altercation with a hotel security guard early Tuesday morning at an after party following Guns N' Roses' sold-out gig at the Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

The incident then left Rose arrested and booked on suspicion of attacking and threatening the guard and causing damage to the hotel. "He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away," police spokesperson Towe Hagg told the Associated Press.

Arresting officer Frank Nylen was quoted as saying Rose needed to be "handcuffed and restrained," at which point the purported brawl broke out. Rose ended up hitting, then chomping one of the guards on the leg, prompting the latter to later seek a medical evaluation at a local hospital. "He kept a high profile, so to speak," Nylen added.

Rose was released from jail late Tuesday after confessing to the charges and agreeing to pay a fine of $5,500, according to The Associated Press. Officials also ordered Rose to pay $1,300 in damages to the security guard whom he assaulted.
