News: Insane Clown Posse Member Sued, $50,000 Lawsuit
Thursday, Jan 1, 2009 11:54PMInsane Clown Posse's Joseph "Violent J" Bruce has been sued for $50,000 by a fan who reportedly suffered physical injuries from a 2007 concert in North Dakota.
According to Associated Press, Fargo resident John Antonelli filed a lawsuit against the rapper claiming a facial bone was broken after he tossed a two-liter bottle into the crowd.
Antonelli has also included the hip-hop venue, The Hub (formerly known as Playmakers), where the event took place in the suit. However, an attorney for the nightclub has reportedly said Violent J should be fully responsible for the alleged injury-causing incident.
Known for producing over two decades of hardcore hip-hop, the Detroit-bred rap duo have released nine albums, wrestled in the WWF and engaged in a lyrical battle with Eminem.
Violent J has yet to release a statement regarding the lawsuit.
