White Stripes leader facing assault charge

DETROIT, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- Singer Jack White of the rock band White Stripes may face assault charges from a weekend incident, The Smoking Gun reports.

White allegedly repeatedly punched Jason Stollsteimer, a singer/guitarist with the local band The Von Bondies, before going to the back of a Detroit night club, according to an article Monday.

White co-produced a 2002 Von Bondies album and members of the two bands have been feuding recently.

According to the police report, Stollsteimer refused to speak with White, who then "became enraged" and without warning pulled Stollsteimer to the ground and punched him "on right eye approximately seven times."

Stollsteimer received medical attention for swelling, bruising and a bloody nose.

White later filed a cross-complaint, saying that Stollsteimer pulled him to the floor and began throttling him "about the face & body," according to White's police report. White's actions were in defense, the report said. White's injuries included cuts to his left hand and "redness in his face," the report said.
