Girls Aloud in another stalker scareAugust 5th, 2008 - 6:54 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug 5 (ANI): Just a few months since facing their last crazed stalker, British pop band Girls Aloud faced yet another security scare at the weekend.
A drunken fan managed to sneak backstage at their gig in Nantwich, Cheshire on Aug 3 and tried to confront them.
Security guards jumped in when the man started shouting obscenities at the girls just before they were due on stage, leaving them in a state of shock.
“It was all pretty dramatic. The girls were due on stage in about three minutes time when he ran up to them. He”d clearly had far too much to drink and was stumbling about the place. Somehow he got backstage and within yards of the group, the Mirror quoted a source, as saying.
“Luckily their security team was on the ball and intercepted him before he was able to do anything untoward. But it took three burly guys to bring him down as he was getting really aggressive.
“The girls were total troupers and despite being a bit shaken, they simply went out and gave a brilliant performance like nothing had happened. The security team was very discreet and didn”t want to worry them unduly.
“But once they were safely on stage, the decision was made to call the police to get the guy arrested.
“In the end, after apologising profusely he was released without charge,” the source added. (ANI)
