Alien Ant Farm's Terry Corso

Alien Ant Farm Guitarist Pleads Guilty To Assaulting Fan At Chester, UK Show


Alien Ant Farm‘s recent overseas touring probably could have gone a lot better than it did. You may recall that the band’s October 24th set in Preston, UK was cut short after someone threw a cup of urine on their lead singer. A few days later during their October 28th set in Chester, England, another fan threw a cup of liquid onto the stage. Guitarist Terry Corso jumped into the crowd and punched the alleged culprit, Richard Newton, as a result.

The police were involved and Corso was charged and has since pled guilty to one count of assault by beating. According to Teamrock, he was ordered to pay £100 to Newton, a £20 victim surcharge and £85 prosecution costs. He has been also been given a 12-month conditional discharge. Corso‘s solicitor Stephen Ferns commented:

“Two days before in Preston someone threw urine at the singer and they all stormed off stage. Then in Chester Terry Corso had something thrown at him which he assumed was urine. He felt angry at that so he confronted the fan and ended up hitting him once. He regrets his actions and says he never should have jumped off the stage.”
