AceShowbiz - Ray Davies had a rather unfortunate event when he tried to save a woman who was robbed in New Orleans. He was strolling through the city when a gunman jumped out out a passing car and demanded the woman's purse before running off. The singer then chased the gunman and his companion, but one of them turned and fired him. He ended up wounded in the leg.
Despite the singer's injury, the robber was eventually arrested and charged with armed robbery and aggravated battery. Davies himself was treated in a local hospital and released a day after. Police chief Eddie Compass said of the incident, "I'm sorry for what happened but Mr. Davies showed poor judgment in running after the individuals."
