Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood arrested for alleged assault



Rolling Stones
guitarist Ronnie Wood was arrested on suspicion of assault for possibly hitting ... someone. The cops haven't said who just yet, which gives us all sorts of leeway to speculate.

Police will not say who filed the complaint against Wood, but he posted bail and was released on Thursday, the AP reports. He's due back in court in January.

"I can confirm that there was an incident last night and that Ronnie Wood was arrested," said David Rigg, Wood's spokesman. Wood was arrested Wednesday near his home in Esher in southern England.

Last month his wife Jo divorced him after 24 years of marriage over his infidelity. She and Ronnie split in 2008 after he started seeing 20-year-old Ekaterina Ivanova, a nightclub waitress he met in London. He and Mel Gibson should start a club or something.
