Axl Rose Detained at Airport
PHOENIX--Axl Rose was arrested on charges of cursing out a security officer who wanted to inspect his bag at an airpot. The Guns N' Roses lead singer began yelling obscenities Tuesday night when the officer wanted a look at an unidentifiable item that showed up on the X-ray screen, police said. Rose spent a few hours in jail before being released early Wednesday.

"A lot of people would have been quiet," Rose publicist Bryn Bridenthal said. "The other response is to say something back. It isn't like he assaulted anyone. In our world, it's kind of a non-incident."

Bridenthal said Rose had spent the weekend in Phoenix with friends and the bag contained a glass art piece he had received as a gift. She said Rose was concerned it would get broken by rough handling.
