Motley Crue Concert Turns Into Melee, Ohio Couple Says
An Ohio couple say they were brutalized by as many as six fellow concertgoers at Motley Crue‘s concert on Tuesday night in Cuyahoga Falls. Now, they’ve turned to social media in an effort to catch the culprits.
Jeff Stone and girlfriend Kristine Scheetz report a variety of injuries in the melee, which took place just two songs into Motley Crue’s Final Tour set at the Blossom Music Center. That included a severely dislocated shoulder for Stone, and various eye injuries for Scheetz — who also required a CT scan at nearby Western Reserve Hospital.
Everything started, Stone says, with a spilled beer. Soon, a group surrounded Scheetz. “We were way outmanned,” Stone tells Cleveland.com. “I don’t even remember how many there were. … Kristine just crawled into a little ball, yelling ‘Why are you doing this?’ She’s never been in a fight and would never hurt a fly.”
Stone says his shoulder became dislocated as others in the group kept him from coming to Scheetz’s aid. To make matters worse, Stone says Summit County deputies initially pushed him to the ground and were preparing to arrest him when others in the audience confirmed the couple’s role as victims.
“It was a nasty fight,” Stone adds via Facebook, “and one of the scariest moments I’ve ever experienced.” He is now offering a $5,000 reward via the same account for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved.
